Jeffco Facilities Plan and Ramifications for Edgewater Area

On April 21, 2016, District staff presented the 2016 Jeffco Schools Facilities Plan to the Jeffco School Board. As stated on the Jeffco Schools website, “The 2016 Jeffco Public Schools Facilities Master Plan aims to maximize utilization of existing facilities, strategize for growth areas, and make investments that support students and teachers with facilities that meet both current and future needs. Our overarching goal is to provide both the best learning environment for our students and the best teaching environment for our staff.”
