Ridgefield School District Seeks Volunteers to Serve on Capital Facilities Advisory Committee

District developing long-range plans to accommodate student enrollment group

Ridgefield School District invites interested residents to join the district’s Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC).  This group will study, analyze, and make capital facility recommendations to the Board of Directors.

Ridgefield School District is Clark County’s fastest-growing school district over the past four years and is projected to more than triple in enrollment by 2035.

The advisory committee’s first meeting will be on Wednesday, December 13 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Ridgefield High School, Room 311.  The committee’s work will continue through March 2018 with recommendations presented to the Board of Directors for consideration in April 2018.  The district anticipates putting a bond proposal on the February 2019 ballot.

The Capital Facilities Advisory Committee will be asked to:

  • Develop programming to meet the needs of Phase III of RSD’s capital facilities plan, as identified by the district’s CFAC team that met from November 2015 – April 2016;
  • Develop criteria for decision-making that promotes continued success for Ridgefield School District and the community;
  • Plan and host community open houses and outreach activities; and
  • Review proposed concepts for Phase III and recommend a preferred concept for the 2019 bond election.

In addition to community members, the committee will include district staff, students, local public officials, and business partners.

Those interested in serving on the Capital Facilities Advisory Committee may sign up by calling the district office at 360-619-1302 or emailing Dr. Nathan McCann, the district’s superintendent at nathan.mccann@ridgefieldsd.org.
