Seattle Public Schools will hold a series of community meetings on the update of their Facilities Master Plan (FMP).
The District is in the process of developing a comprehensive 2020 Facilities Master Plan. The planning process is an aggressive effort to outline a systematic schedule of improving Seattle Schools facilities. In addition, the FMP brings together major School District policies, studies, and documents into one plan that guides the future direction of District facilities use, re-use, and/or closure.
The primary focus of the FMP is to concentrate on major renovations, and building replacements while simultaneously addressing deferred maintenance projects in other school buildings.
I can say with some authority that this is not a plan but rather a collection of information. It has not changed substantially since the last one despite school closures. It could be a very important document but I think since it is produced because of state regulations rather than being a real working document that it's mostly for show.
