NEW! Asynchronous Feedback Opportunity

  • To ensure every stakeholder that wants to provide feedback on the current project proposals has the opportunity to do so, the information from the in-person forums has been made into a playlist of short videos. Stakeholders can watch these videos at a time and place that works for them and then provide feedback via an electronic form. All feedback gathered through this asynchronous opportunity will also be shared with the Facilities Planning 2.0 Taskforce and the School Board. The feedback form will close on Tuesday, April 30, so the information can be synthesized prior to the May 1 meeting of the Taskforce.

What is Facilities Plan 2.0?

  • On September 26, 2023, West Fargo Public Schools’ voters defeated a $147 million referendum request.

    At their regularly scheduled meeting on December 11, 2023, the School Board authorized district administration to engage the community in determining the next steps for addressing our growth. The intent is to reengage the 2023 Long-Range Facility Planning (LRFP) Taskforce membership, invite new voices to the table, and to offer several community-wide forums, all with a focus of: 

    • Reviewing the failed bond referendum package and analyzing feedback from stakeholders.
    • Developing strategies to engage stakeholders in creating solutions that address the rapid growth in the district.
    • Engaging subcommittee members to determine other alternatives to address rapid growth short and long-term.
    • Analyzing data from stakeholders and creating recommendations to address the rapid growth in the district. 

    These efforts are the foundation of Facilities Plan 2.0. 

Taskforce Meetings

  • Taskforce Meeting #1 (1/10/24)

  • Taskforce Meeting #2 (2/21/24)

  • Taskforce Meeting #3 (5/01/24)

Public Forums

  • The purpose of this round of public forums is to gather feedback on the list of projects brainstormed by the Facilities Plan 2.0 Taskforce for possible inclusion in a future referendum package.

    To encourage as much dialogue as possible, participants will move through a series of small groups, each focused on a set of 1-3 projects. Information on the projects will be shared in the small group before feedback will be solicited both verbally and through an electronic survey.

    THANK YOU to the roughly 200 stakeholders that attended the in-person forums that were held on March 19, March 27, and April 10! Your feedback is being compiled and will be shared with the Facilities Planning 2.0 Taskforce and the School Board.
