Aurora City Schools - Facility Master Planning Project 

In order to best prepare for the future of the Aurora City Schools’ facility needs, the district is embarking on a master plan project to better understand the long term needs for the district. These efforts ensure that students have access to the best possible educational environment, and that the district makes the best possible use of community funds.

Current Media and Updates:

The plan that has been developed was designed to address the aging infrastructure in the district, along with capacity concerns, while also meeting the needs of the community stakeholders, creating a central academic campus that provides space for future educational and community opportunities.

WHY A MASTER PLANNING PROJECT?

In order to best prepare for the future of Aurora City Schools facility needs, the district is embarking on a master plan project to better understand the long term facility needs for the district. These efforts ensure that students have access to the best possible educational environment, and that the district makes the best possible use of community funds. 

Currently the district operates 5 buildings:

While these buildings continue to serve the district, as they age they will require more costly repairs. Some of the mechanical systems are reaching the "end of their lifecycle" and will require replacement. The district is working with an architect to understand building configurations, schedules and timelines, cost and budget issues and how facilities can impact the district for the next 70 years.   

To prepare for future growth in the community, new students and the changing world.

To explore the best possible environments for students to learn, continuing Aurora's tradition of achievement and excellence.

To develop a strategy around district facility plans and ensure the most efficient use of taxpayer dollars.

A VISION FOR AURORA'S FUTURE

Today’s schools must not only build a solid foundation of academic knowledge, but also nurture a deep sense of purpose and self in young people. These young people are not merely students, but LEARNERS with a skill set that prepares them to be successful in an ever changing world. The following six competencies paint a portrait of our areas of emphasis for all young people (PK-12) in the Aurora City Schools as defined by community stakeholders.
