Our school district is experiencing tremendous enrollment growth. We are a popular school district with lots of housing growth; with that growth comes families with children. Over the next ten years PLSAS is expecting an additional 2,185 students spread across all grade levels (2017/18 – 2026/27). Long-term facilities planning is underway, with the district's Facilities Task Force meeting to study enrollment and demographic data. The Task Force will identify needs, generate ideas and provide input to a Facilities Design. There will be opportunities for the public to review options and provide input before Board action this spring. More information.
