Facility Master Planning
In April of 2018, the ADM Board of Education approved the start of a Facility Master Planning process to study enrollment growth and determine future facility needs for the district. A Board-approved committee comprised of community members, teachers, administrators, city mayors, and board members was created to study district needs and to provide recommendations. Throughout 9 months of work facilitated by RSP and Associates, the Facility Master Planning Committee evaluated current ADM facilities, identified capacity levels for current buildings, studied future enrollment projections, explored neighborhood and attendance center options and developed a draft concept for public input.
On January 14, 2019, Rob Schwarz of RSP and Associates, presented the ADM Facility Master Planning Committee’s final report to the ADM Board of Education. The final report included a recommendation for the construction of a new elementary building for grades 2-4.
On April 8, 2019, the ADM Board of Directors unanimously passed a resolution ordering a special election to authorize the ADM School District to contract indebtedness and issue General Obligation Bonds in an amount not to exceed $15,750,000 to provide funds to construct, build, furnish and equip a new elementary building and improve the site.
On June 25, 2019, ADM residents voted on the following ballot measure: “Shall the Board of Directors of the Adel DeSoto Minburn Community School District in the Counties of Dallas and Madison, State of Iowa, be authorized to contract indebtedness and issue General Obligation Bonds in an amount not to exceed $15,750,000 to provide funds to construct, build, furnish and equip a new elementary building and improve the site?” The measure passed with 80.01% YES and 19.99% NO. The ballot question required a 60% supermajority “yes” vote to pass.
