PLT #3 Future Facilities Plan

The Future Planning Team is currently working on the Future Facilities Plan for the PLT #3 School District.
The committee has developed a plan to thoroughly assess all of the district’s buildings. The conclusion of the report should include a comprehensive look at code requirements, the physical condition of the buildings, and educational needs. The team will investigate all options for housing students, as well as address all facilitators and inhibitors.
The goal is to provide a detailed rationale of the findings to the board of education and the community. Updates regarding our work will be communicated monthly at our regular scheduled board meetings.
The Future Planning Team will focus on meeting the needs of all our students to better support 21st century learning. Click HERE to view the Future Facilities Plan.
