Process for Success/Facilities Master Plan Update
This is the image for the news article titled Process for Success/Facilities Master Plan Update

The Process for Success Committee (PFS) began the task in March of 2016 of reviewing the school district's current facilities, looking at enrollment projections and assessing the best way to meet the current and long range facility needs of all students in an efficient and effective manner. The PFS committee is made up of community members, parents and staff who have invested significant time and effort reviewing information. Click HERE for more information on Process for Success/Facilities Master Plans.

The committee defined the four primary facilities master plan goals as:

1. Safety and security at all district facilities, including storm shelters and ADA accessibility
2. Addressing deferred maintenance
3. Efficiency and growth
4. Curriculum and program equity

Next Steps
As Derby Public Schools continues to move forward with a Facilities Master Plan proposal, it is imperative that we have feedback from the community. Due to low attendance and feedback received at recent community meetings the district has contracted with Patron Insight, a service that helps gather community input. Learn more about Patron Insight HERE.

Patron Insight will formulate questions and make 400 phone calls at random to community members to gain insight into the Facilities Master Plan and possible bond proposal. They will also provide an online survey to gather even more input from a wider audience. We will provide more information on the phone and online surveys once we have specific dates from Patron Insight. Due to the time frame of this additional survey component, the steering committee did not meet on June 1 as previously planned. Patron Insight will present a report of their surveys to the Board of Education upon completion of the surveys. Following this presentation, each steering committee member will also receive the report to review before reconvening again to discuss plans.
