LONG RANGE PLANNING

 

 

It is the responsibility of the Board of Education to develop and implement plans for the district that will meet the educational requirements of the community both today and into the future.  For this reason the Natchitoches Parish School Board is attempting to decide upon a long-range building plan to be implemented over the next several years to meet the district's requirements.

 

The objectives of such a plan are:

 

  1. To improve the educational environment for students and teachers by raising the physical standards in all buildings to match the most effective facilities already existent in the district.
     

  2. To modernize in phases with first priority given to renovation, second priority to remodeling or improvement of substandard facilities (such as libraries, physical education facilities, etc.) and third priority to the addition of classrooms when enrollment trends indicate they would be necessary.
     

  3. To create school complexes which are the best possible balance of effective grouping of educational resources, efficient management and operations, and community concerns for the character of the school system.
