The Hamilton School Board established the Community Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) in October to study community growth, enrollment projections and facilities needs in the district. After reviewing the latest data from municipalities, the committee learned that subdivision development is expected to bring 1,757 new housing units to the district, resulting in an additional 284 students in the next five years.
The committee also reviewed the condition and serviceability of other spaces including middle and high school cafeterias and high school outdoor athletic fields.
Before making recommendations to the School Board, the committee sought input from parents and staff on potential facility projects. Results from online surveys administered in November 2021 were compared to 2017 referendum surveys and shared with the committee in December. CFAC members were provided with a handout highlighting the 2021 vs. 2017 survey results. The CFAC will present its findings and recommendations Jan. 18 in a report to the School Board. Expect to learn more about that report following the meeting.
