Amanda-Clearcreek Board of Education Approves Master Facilities Plan


AMANDA, Ohio (April 21, 2023)  The Amanda-Clearcreek Board of Education reviewed and approved the district’s Master Facility Plan during the Board of Education Meeting on Wednesday, April 19.

The master facilities planning process helps the district maintain its dedication to being good stewards of property and funds while accommodating the growth the district has experienced and anticipates in the future. These plans consider needs decades down the road to ensure shorter-term decisions also support the most efficient long-term expansion for the district. In addition, the planning process supports the most effective cost-planning when considering market predictions and fluctuations for materials and construction costs.

“This Master Facilities Plan allows our district to reinvest in the school buildings that our community made possible for our district to build in the early 2000s. These ‘new’ schools are nearly 20 years old, which require maintenance and upkeep to ensure our buildings last well into the future,” said Timothy Edwards, Ed.D, superintendent of Amanda-Clearcreek Local Schools. “This planning process allows our district to make the most economical decisions now, while also supporting the potential needs for future growth decades down the road on our existing campus.”

The Master Facilities Plan is divided up into three phases, with timing details to be determined. Phase 1 projects include a K-2 building addition, a storage building for athletics, parking lot expansion, baseball/softball concessions and a batting cage. More information is available on the Amanda-Clearcreek Local Schools website within the Our District header under the Master Facilities Plan tab.

In recent years, the district has made critical updates to some facilities, including roofs, playground surfaces, controls for energy savings, a chiller for the K-2 building, parking lot sealing and repair and track resurfacing and stadium updates. The district is also in process of replacing the ’77 Gym HVAC System. The current HVAC system in the ’77 Gym is the original unit from the building’s construction 46 years ago.
