Building Now and for the Future

Facilities Planning

One of the goals in Battle Ground Public Schools Strategic Plan is to provide safe and secure facilities that are equipped to prepare our students for college and careers and accommodate a growing student population.

With that goal as the guiding principle, a community-led team of dedicated volunteers from every area of the district worked for two years - often meeting weekly - to craft the Long-Range Facilities Plan, which charts a course for providing appropriate facilities for educational instruction now and into the future.

The Facilities Improvement Team (FIT) presented their plan to the Board of Directors in the spring of 2016, along with the recommendation to run a bond measure that would fund Phase I of the plan. The board passed a resolution to put a bond before voters on the November 8, 2016 general election ballot. The bond failed to get the supermajority it needed to pass.

Phase I projects will:

  • Replace deteriorating schools and accommodate growth
  • Make safety and security updates 
  • Enhance schools for 21st century learning.
