do we need to vote on a referendum? is impacted? New Facility Bond Referendum 12/17/12 Information Presentation regarding the
upcoming Facility Bond Referendum Vote for
the residents of the Rothsay Public School District Why... Who.... Storage Needs Stage is currently used for storage In August, 2012, a facility analysis was completed by Wold Architects and Engineers; the report concluded that $6.5 million in updates need to be completed in order to bring the current building up to code.
With the addition of square footage, the total renovation project would cost approximately $16 million. Current Facility Needs Storage Space in Hallways Exposed Wiring Uni vents Uni vent systems are beyond their useful life Storage in maintenance facilities very crowded office and reception area crowded for the amount of traffic each day Technology needs are becoming larger, space is inadequate for the needs exposure of wiring no place for equipment storage (bottom of stairwell) athletic storage crowded and not containing all of the football equipment weight room facilities crowded with limited access
and outdated equipment Desks are at least 50 years old Over Crowded Lunchroom Facility Kitchen Facilities Need Many Updates
(details included in engineer's report) Classroom facilities crowded with
outdated equipment Art Room/Health Room/Cooking Facility/Teachers Lounge =
not enough space Computer Labs are unreliable due to constant repairs and updates in technology infrastructure - this particular lab does not have correct temperature control for a computer lab The state of Minnesota recommends new construction when a renovation project becomes more than 40% of the current facilities value
($2 million). A Brand New Facility including some Renovations to Current Facility is $24 million Solution Challenges Cost Proposed project is $24 million; bond rates are between 1 and 3 percent; individual tax impact information is available by contacting Ehlers at
Construction costs are estimated to increase at a rate of 2 - 4% each year plus increased costs of fabricators, suppliers, material mills, etc. The Rothsay Board of education unanimously agree that the best solution to the growing list of challenges our district faces is
to build a new school facility. After a structural evaluation of
our existing facility for it's ability to meet current fire, building, and life safety codes, and an analysis of current program needs, along with the trends of increased enrollment at about 20 new students each year, it has been determined we are no longer meeting the minimum requirements that
our students deserve. We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.
