To best serve our community’s investment in Bloomfield Hills Schools, our district utilizes a process for ongoing evaluation and monitoring of all school facilities.
Working with construction, technology, and architectural specialists, the district’s research into future possibilities began with the Master Property Planning work in 2014. The research completed when a Scope & Design study began in the summer of 2019. This in-depth facility study engaged 25 residents of the district, and included a review of student safety, grade configurations, the educational program, and facility needs. The findings of the Scope & Design group were reviewed by students, staff, families, and community members in a series of focus panels conducted on October 1, 2019. In addition, focus panelists participated in follow-up online surveys during the balance of the Scope and Design process.
The Scope & Design process and the Scope & Design recommendations were reviewed by the Board of Education and placed on the May 5, 2020, ballot. When COVID-19 hit, the Board of Education voted to move the vote to the August ballot to best protect the voters of Bloomfield Hills Schools.
