Long Range Planning

We are committed to providing a safe and modern learning environment for our students. As a public institution, we are responsible to mitigate risk in any way we can to our physical buildings and the people who occupy them. This involves long range facilities planning as well as day-to-day procedures and best practices for the safety of students, staff, and other visitors.

How We Plan

Planning is a continual process in our district. For long term planning, a facilities advisory committee is convened by the superintendent and is comprised of educational leaders, school board members, and community members with planning and facilities expertise.

  • The superintendent convened a Long Range Facilities Planning Committee in 2017 to review facility needs and recommend a Long Range Facilities Master Plan to address the aging infrastructure in our district.
  • The Corvallis School Board adopted a Long Range Facilities Master Plan on January 11, 2018.
  • The community supported a¬†bond campaign in 2002 for $86,397,641. Construction activities funded by the bond began in June 2003 and were completed in 2008. Projects included¬†the replacement of Corvallis High School, major renovations at Crescent Valley High School, the replacement of Highland View and Western View Middle Schools with the new Linus Pauling Middle School, and major repairs to other buildings to address accessibility and immediate safety concerns, including seismic upgrades.
