Master Facilities Planning

District 66 is developing a Master Facilities Plan (MFP) through our architectural firm, Wight & Company.  Once completed, the Master Facilities Plan will enable District 66 to prioritize and plan for the various projects required to ensure that we are providing a future ready learning environment for our students and staff.   Community and staff input will be critical throughout the process.  This page will be updated regularly with all public presentations and future meeting dates.
