The City of Chesapeake and Chesapeake Public Schools are embarking on a long-term planning effort. The Facilities Master Plan (FMP) and Attendance Zone Study will look at major capital investments such as new construction and renovations of current school facilities. It will also involve an analysis of attendance zones to identify opportunities to maximize current school facilities.
A Steering Committee made up of teachers and administrators, parents, students, city staff, higher education representatives, business leaders, and other community members has been created to represent community voices at key steps of the planning process.Online surveys will be available with every meeting to allow citizens unable to attend to provide input.
Timeline - Updated
The original project timeline included the final community engagement activities in the spring and fall of 2020, with the fall community meetings being focused on attendance zone options. This was to be followed by a presentation of the final report to the City Council and School Board at a joint meeting in October.
The new project timeline provides for the Facilities Master Plan (FMP) being delivered in January 2021 as an interim deliverable. This deliverable will not include detailed attendance zone plans. Instead it will include FMP recommendations along with proposed phasing, to include priority projects that do not require boundary adjustments.
Community engagement on facility plan options with associated attendance zones will occur at a date to be determined when these activities are appropriate, while taking into account the impact of the pandemic. Following those engagement exercises, the FMP with associated boundary changes will be delivered.
Steering Committee meetings will be held virtually on Thursday, November 12 and Thursday, December 3, both from 6 - 8 p.m.
Community Dialogue Meetings
Community input is a vital part of creating the FTP. Community Dialogue Meetings will be held at various points throughout the process so that you can receive updates and submit comments to make your voice heard. Each meeting will be held twice to allow for you to pick the time and location that is most convenient for you.
