What is a Facilities Master Plan A Facilities Master Plan is a living document produced as a summation of a comprehensive process and becomes the road map to address the District's current and future facilities improvement needs. A Facilities Master Plan examines overall educational and facilities needs beyond any modernizations or improvements constructed to date at each site. Moreover, the process of developing a comprehensively prepared Facilities Master Plan includes a planning team and outreach process to solicit input from District's school sites and the community.
