In early September, we submitted a Request For Proposal for a Facility Master Plan, in support of the following School Vitality Goal, ranked #2:

Facilities #18 - To establish a Facilities Master Plan that creates a safe, environmentally conscious and engaging school campus.

Earlier this week, we received proposals from all four firms. Each firm will do a presentation at the next PJP Advisory Board Meeting on 10/30/19 at 6:00pm in the Cafeteria.

All Advisory Board meetings are open to the public. If you are interested, you are welcome to attend the meeting.
