On Sept. The Imagine OPRF work group, 11 introduced a draft of a five sequence term master facilities plan into the District 200 Board of Education for OPRF High School. The demonstration included cost estimates during the next years for construction of the 3 sequences. The scope and prices of the plan are significant since Imagine is currently advocating overdue investment in OPRF’s facilities. Imagine OPRF is volunteer group of 30 community members, a community led and 10 staff and faculty. Since August 2017 we’ve been exploring the facilities needs of OPRF, gathering input and creating a plan. The group spent 6 months researching facilities needs, with a focus on students, student learning, and equity.
Our comprehensive and rigorous process is recorded at ImagineOPRF.org. Facilities problems list isn’t surprising for a nearly million sq foot building. We spent another 6 months assigning identified issues and planning to address them in constraints of other district priorities, distance, and neighborhood concerns. The process forced us set aside a number of what we envisioned and to pare down our list. The resulting plan doesn’t address the needs we identified. A number of factors, including urgency of facilities, constructability, and Imagine prioritization, building impact benefits of spaces to pupils has determined their order. Major components of Sequence 1 include with a brand new Student Resource Center in the heart of the Building, renovated and enlarged Special Education facilities, including those serving pupils with their most profound needs, along with 76 renovated or new classrooms, such as enlarged visual arts spaces.
