District Updates

Please see above for data regarding cases in our schools.

The District will continue to monitor the number of students and staff impacted by COVID. As a reminder, the Recovery Plan linked below and developed this summer has a plan for adding layers of mitigation as needed. The nursing staff in our schools will track absences in our schools. When we have 4% of a school out with a "like" illness, like COVID, the Response team will meet to determine if additional layers of mitigation practices need to be added. This might include increased distancing or masking for a period of time. Most often, our District has planned to shift to Remote Learning for a short period to allow full separation and opportunity to disinfect. Please review the Recovery Plan below and if you have questions, join our weekly Zoom call.

We will also review our District's Master Facility Planning on our Monday call after the COVID update.

School District Master Facility Planning Information

Over the last year, the Buena Vista School District Board of Education has been working with a consultant to develop both a Maintenance Plan to care long term for our facilities as well as evaluate the growth and property use needs of the building overall. The Board of Education has set the following goals:

1. Achieve additional space for preschool and elementary programming

2. Address long term ADA and space needs at the District Administration office space

3. Remedy the safety issues of the Old McGinnis Gym through demolition or repair/repurpose

4. Maintain some land asset for additional expansion in future years

5. Create efficiencies in use of facilities around the Main Street campuses

6. Achieve goals with no tax increase to the community

Find the Master Planning Information Here.
