Facilities Planning

The Martensdale-St. Marys began a study into its current facilities in January 2023. Through this process, the District contracted Denovo Construction Services out of West Des Moines to provide a Facilities Condition Report.

The Board of Directors received this report on September 11, 2023, in its Regular Meeting and it was decided that next steps would be to hold Community Meetings in October 2023 to review this report with the community and gather input from stakeholders.

    Community Meeting Responses

    Two community meetings were held in October to discuss our current and future state connected to the facilities of our school district.

    In each meeting, attendees had the opportunity to provide feedback to five questions in a small group setting.

    These questions were:

    •Where do you foresee the School District in 10-20 years?

    •What steps do we need to take to move in that direction now?

    •What programs are vital to our success?

    •What are we missing as a school district?

    •How can our facilities make these programs successful?

    Here is a summary of all responses: Community Meeting Responses
