Recommendation for LEAD Expansion 20190308.pdf
Provide Background Details and Rationale: The 2018-2019 official enrollment at the LEAD Innovation Studio is 291 students. This includes 144 freshman, and 147 sophomores. Based upon student registration data collected in the last two months, the 2019-2020 freshman class is expected to exceed 220 students.

The construction of the new LEAD Innovation Studio began in February 2019. The facility was designed and is currently being constructed for a capacity of 600 students, or approximately 150 students per grade level.

At this point in the construction, the district would be able to expand the current facility design without impacting the target opening date of August, 2020. The expansion would include 6,700 square feet of instructional space, which would increase the student capacity to 700 students and the total square footage to 67,120 square feet.

To keep costs down and to not interrupt the construction schedule, the district would utilize the existing Board-approved contractors on the project.

The proposed expansion of the building to address the increased demand is estimated to increase the budget from $23.0 million to $26.6 million. It is proposed that the Board of Education utilize operating and capital fund balances to fund the expansion.
Provide Funding Source and Estimated Cost: $3.6 Million
