MCPHERSON, Kan. – McPherson USD 418 residents should expect to receive a pamphlet in the mail this week outlining facilities challenges and the options proposed. Filling out the short survey will provide the district with community input on futureproofing USD 418 facilities.
The district reports that many buildings, including the HVAC, electrical, and other systems within them, have exceeded their life expectancy.
The survey will take less than 10 minutes, and it includes the following questions:
– Which option do you think best solves the challenges? Why?
– Is there anything missing? What else should we consider?
– How much are you willing to invest on a monthly basis for a long-term facilities solution?
The survey is due back by Nov. 27th.
“Please be detailed and specific in your feedback – we know there are a variety of different perspectives, and we want to capture all of that nuance so our Board can determine the next steps,” said a social media release.
Anyone who does not receive a pamphlet and lives in the USD 418 school district, can either pick one up at Central Office (514 N. Main) or review the information at https://www.418facilitiesplanning.com/.
“Over the past ﬁve years, the USD 418 Board of Education has been evaluating our current buildings and looking at how facilities can help fuel student and community success for the next 50 years,” the release said. “We recently held visioning sessions with community and staff to look at key factors and develop possible solutions. We’re now seeking advice from you on possible options that emerged from these meetings.”
