10-Year Elementary Facilities Plan

Background and Overview

In October 2013, the Board of Education adopted the Elementary Facilities Ten-Year Master Plan to address South Windsor's five aging elementary school buildings. At that time, the buildings ranged in age from 51 to 63 years old. This plan stemmed from the district's 2011-2014 Strategic Plan which called for the development of a "long-range elementary facilities plan that promotes a safe, engaging learning environment accessible to all students and community members.” 

The Ten-Year Plan calls for a three-phased approach using multiple referenda to address South Windsor's elementary facilities needs over a span of ten years.
