Providing modern, safe learning environments that are designed for the way students learn and teachers teach in the 21st century will prepare our next generation for their future. Our current construction project remains on time, on budget, and on quality.
Similarly, it’s important that our athletics facilities, which benefit students in grades K-12, reflect a focus on safety, as well as the needs and goals of our student-athletes and the community, and be a place our community can proudly rally around and support our students. An as important goal of our master facilities plan is to have facilities designed for the community, by the community
The district has hired the architecture firm of Perkins & Will to develop a good, better, best master plan with options for improving our athletic complex just north of Grandview Heights High School.

As with past facilities planning, we will be engaging with the community for feedback and suggestions on the best path forward. We will not proceed with an improvement project until we think the timing is right to explore our options. We will meet with a variety of stakeholders, including students, coaches, administrators, parent groups, and boosters. Thank you in advance for your time and participation in this very important process. It is greatly appreciated.
In addition to user groups being involved in needs assessments, programming, and design development, we will also have scheduled community meetings to garner feedback on community on May 12, June 1, and July 19, 2022, at 6 p.m. in the new Larson Middle School.

The athletic complex conversation first began six years ago. In 2017, Athletic Director Brad Bertani assembled a committee to study the athletic complex located immediately north of the high school. The committee was tasked with reviewing the existing facilities and creating a list of recommendations for physical changes or improvements. The attached recommendation report is the result of that committee’s work.
