SCHOOL FACILITIES PLAN
INFORMATION FROM COMMUNITY MEETINGS
2022 marks the 150th anniversary of Belpre City Schools and is a time of transition and transformation for our district. As many of you are aware, We recently launched our Portrait of a Graduate to serve as our school district's north star and anchor of our strategic plan. In response, the district next developed The Eagle Flight Plan, a comprehensive professional development plan, to build the capacity of our educators to make appropriate adjustments in teaching and learning to align around our Portrait. The Eagle Flight Plan can be accessed by clicking here. We are taking a comprehensive look at the way we approach teaching and learning and working hard as a team to redefine and transform our approach to meet the needs of the 21st century.
On September 1, 2021, Belpre City Schools held its first community forum to collaborate with stakeholders toward the creation of a Master Facilities Plan for the district's future. Many years ago, during a short time frame of 1952 - 1969, the district and community came together to invest in four facility projects to create our current facility structure. The return on investment from those decisions has been the memories, learning, sense of community, pride and success of our students and alumni for nearly 75 years. The time how now come for us to again re-engage with one another and contemplate the needs of our physical facilities for the benefit of our community and our students.
