Facility Master Plan
School District U-46 embarked on an Educational Facility Master Plan (EFMP) process to assess our infrastructure, classrooms, furnishings and overall facility use and efficiency. The Board selected DLR Group, a Chicago-based design firm, as its partner to develop a facilities master plan.
This is long-range work that the District undertook in early 2020, just before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. But with some modifications and minor delays, the process continued, and students, faculty, parents, and community members were able to participate in the beginning stages of developing a thoughtful, long-term master plan to support our future.
Thank you for your support as the District works to provide equitable access to 21st century learning environments that support academic success for all. If you have any questions about DLR Group's work, please reach out to the District’s Operations Department by clicking on the “Educational Facility Master Plan” on Let’s Talk.
