In the fall of 2022, Loudonville-Perrysville Exempted Village Schools conducted a series of community engagement activities that included surveys and focus groups of community members, students and staff with a goal of understanding what is going well for L-P Schools and what areas are in need of improvement. The engagements highlighted the need for continued work on our facilities and addressing some of the ongoing challenges of the aging structures. 

The Board of Education voted in the spring of 2023 to move forward with a facilities assessment in partnership with Garmann Miller, a K-12 professional planning and design firm. This study reviewed and evaluated the state of our current buildings, the accessibility of our spaces and identified areas of improvement or replacement. This was the first step in completing a master facilities plan, which aims to create a comprehensive approach to addressing building needs and ensuring a safe and accessible place of learning for our Redbirds that embodies the community’s vision for our district’s future. 

This fall, as the facilities assessment drew to a close, the district established a Facilities Task Force comprised of parents, community members, students, business owners, community partners, Board of Education members and school staff in order to create a community-driven plan for our school buildings that respects our rich history and prepares us for the future. 

The Task Force reviewed and assessed extensively, covering topics from funding sources to touring similar nearby districts. This review, with guidance from Garmann Miller, has resulted in two Master Facilities Plan options that will be presented to the community over the coming weeks. The Task Force will seek feedback from the community on both plans, culminating in a recommendation to the Board of Education during the May 13 meeting.
