STRATEGIC PLAN

School Environment

The Gilmanton School District will provide a safe, healthy and adequate physical plant to promote and maintain a sound educational environment.

Current Status:

The Gilmanton School completed a renovation and addition project in 1997. Repairs in the 1996 and 1978 wings have been ongoing and completed as needed.

  • Provide on-site fitness opportunities for staff to promote wellness.
  • Complete an emergency response plan.
  • Ensure student/teacher ratios are within optimum recommendations.
  • Support all staff in working effectively.
  • Continue the building and grounds committee to oversee facility needs.

Objectives:

  • Complete population projections.
  • Complete an inventory of all equipment
  • Identify critical maintenance/upgrade needs
  • Identify critical health and safety issues
  • Determine wellness and collegiality needs of the staff and student population

Long Term Goals:

  • Adjust building capabilities as dictated by population and program needs.
  • Maintain the facility to function as designed and promote pride in appearance.
  • Maintain and support a productive school environment.
  • Support and encourage community participation in the building by providing enrichment opportunities for all.
