RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Washoe County School District is asking for the public’s input on future projects.

The district has hired a company called CannonDesign to develop a long-term plan for prioritizing, scheduling, and implementing improvement projects at schools.

Three public forums will be had to get input about these improvements, which the district hopes will expand educational opportunities and support diverse communities.

Each of the forums will feature discussions such as project overviews, community priorities and improvement options. You are encouraged to offer your ideas and critiques.

The forums will be as scheduled:

“We are committed to ensuring that students across our district have access to infrastructure that fosters a healthy learning environment,” said WCSD Chief Operations Officer Adam Searcy. “Students and teachers should not have to worry about leaky roofs and faulty HVAC systems. We have already allocated $1 billion into building and repairing schools since the 2016 ballot initiative on capital funding passed. In this next phase, we want to find opportunities to modernize our existing schools, providing similar facility resources to all students. We are looking forward to seeking public input about where we should invest our capital dollars next.”
