Community Construction Meeting

Several years ago, Avonworth School District began a comprehensive analysis of our facilities to ensure we could accommodate our growing enrollment. In February of 2020, Dr. Ralston, Avonworth’s former superintendent, sent a letter to our school community with an update on a demographic study conducted by Dr. Shelby Stewman as part of this ongoing analysis. At that time, our enrollment was 1,796 students. Dr. Stewman’s study indicated our enrollment would continue to increase and reach 2,100 to 2,200 students by 2028. Today, our enrollment is 1,957 and is on track to meet or exceed Dr. Stewman’s prediction.

In 2019, the District hired IKM Architecture to conduct a feasibility study and prepare a facility master plan for the District. Approximately sixty stakeholders, including community members, parents, students, teachers, paraprofessionals, board members, and administrators, participated in the study. The study resulted in the District engaging in a design process over the last fourteen months for an addition to our middle school and renovation to our high school. We are excited to share that the project is out to bid, and we anticipate construction beginning this June.

The meeting will occur at Avonworth High School in the Dr. Thomas Ralston Learning Lab, but you can also attend virtually via Zoom. This meeting aims to provide an overview of the project, how the project will impact the secondary campus during construction, and offer the opportunity to ask questions.

Please use the QR code below to register if you plan to attend the meeting. We ask that you register ahead of time to assist us with planning and preparing for the meeting. Registration links are also available on the District’s website. Click to register.

We are very excited about the transformation that will take place on our secondary campus over the next couple of years. Throughout the project, updates will be shared on our website. Please check the website regularly to view the progress of this project.
Thank you for your continued support of the Avonworth School District!
