Capital Facilities Planning

At the April 8 business meeting, the board adopted, through Resolution 19-02 an updated six-year Capital Facilities Plan.

As we look into the future, we anticipate growth in the student population. The big question is just how much growth we are to expect when it will come, and how we should plan for that growth. This fall we hired a demographer to help us understand the potential for future growth in the Woodland Public Schools. The Capital Facilities Plan (CFP) plans for an additional elementary school and a shift of grade 5 to the elementary level in order to accommodate future growth.   

When we sold the bonds from the 2012 issue, we designed the bonds for a drop in tax rates in 2028 with the idea that we would need to be expanding and/or renewing facilities in that time frame.   With the potential expansion of housing in Woodland, the need may occur before that 2028 time frame.   

The goal of this topic will be for the board to have a shared understanding of future needs, probability of growth, and rates of growth so that we can consider timelines for property acquisition and project development, bond planning, etc.
