New Philadelphia children and community expect and deserve excellent schools and facilities.
•Our buildings are overcrowded and no longer meet today’s educational needs-even as our enrollment continues to grow.
•Our aging facilities require significant and ongoing maintenance, repairs and replacements of boilers, roofs, and major systems.
•If we act now, the State of Ohio will pay up to 55% of the cost of our Master Facilities Plan.
•Our current buildings do not provide optimal safety and security for our kids and staff.
•We have been forced to repurpose non-educational spaces into classrooms, a less than optimal approach.
•We have added two additional modulars (4 rooms) this past summer for a total of 9 modular units at our elementary schools.
•Our Master Facilities Plan will be created with input from our stakeholders and our community.
•Our schools provide value to our taxpayers & prepare our students for their futures.
We have the opportunity to shape our district’s future for the next 50 years. Those before us planned so we could succeed. It’s our turn to plan for the next generation.
We are designing our schools' future.
