Kings Facilities Community Advisory Committee

After months of diligent work, the Kings Facilities CAT Team presented a final recommended Master Plan to the Kings Board of Education. 

The comprehensive recommendation provides a blueprint for facilities upgrades across the district to address current and future enrollment. Priority projects include a new 9-12 High School campus, additions at Columbia Intermediate, and key infrastructure improvements throughout the district.

Community volunteers, parents, staff, and students have provided input throughout this extensive planning process to ensure the recommended projects align with the district's needs and vision. The Board of Education will vote on whether to approve the final Master Facilities Plan at their next meeting on Tuesday, November 14.

This community-driven plan will help pave the way for 21st-century learning environments that support Kings students' future success. We encourage our Knight Nation community to review the full recommendations and presentation slides below.

The Kings Local School District Board of Education voted on Tuesday, November 14 to accept the Master Facility Plan recommended by the Community Advisory Team. This plan calls for constructing a new Kings High School to address current capacity issues. The plan would also rightsize our current elementary buildings. JF Burns, Kings Mills, and South Lebanon Elementary Schools would transition into K-3 schools. Columbia Intermediate School will receive an addition in order to house 4th and 5th-grade students. Kings Junior High School would transition into a 6-8 middle school located at the current high school. Additionally, the plan calls for improvements to existing buildings.

The Board took the first step toward placing a $142 million bond issue on the March 2024 ballot to fund the facility improvement projects. The district is working closely with financial advisors and the County Auditor to determine the necessary millage amount for the ballot measure and financing to minimize the impact on taxpayers.   

The Board will vote in December on whether to officially place the bond issue on the March 19, 2024 ballot.
