Since last fall, the USD 214 Board of Education and Facility Steering committee have worked with GMCN Architects and McCownGordon Construction to evaluate our current buildings and analyze how well these buildings meet the needs of the students and faculty. Through this process, they identified challenges including:​

  • Safety and security deficits​

  • Aged and inefficient mechanical systems​

  • Leaking roofs​

  • ADA and building code compliance issues​

  • Outdated and inefficient kitchens​

  • Lack of electrical infrastructure for modern technology​

  • Problematic classroom configurations​


Below is a recent example of the current issues that arise with our aging facilities.​

The roof above the original section of the high school, above the pod classroom area, is the original roof that has been foamed and coated.​

This week there was a significant leak on this section of the roof where the coating cracked and water worked its way under the foam causing it to leak through the original roof. ​

Under the scope of work for the proposed USD 214 School Bond, this section of roofing would be reworked as part of the remodeling to the current high school.  Otherwise, the cost to replace this section of the roof is estimated at $609,000.​
