  • Will parents have a chance to see how these projects will look on the site?

    Posted by West Fargo Public Schools on 8/13/2018 12:00:00 PM

    Yes, we have already received sample site plan for the new high school and middle school campus, as well as the internal building plans for the elementary school projects. As the construction process continues, the district will receive site plans, building plans, and aesthetic plans for all projects, which will in turn be shared with stakeholders in district publications and on social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn).

  • How will you communicate with stakeholders who do not have children in currently in the district?

    Posted by West Fargo Public Schools on 8/13/2018 10:00:00 AM

    The district has a full bond communication plan in place through September 25. As part of that communication plan, we will be communicating with district families through district and/or school publications and at district and/or school events. The district is a committed user of social media – Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn – all of which will continue to highlight information related to the bond package and the special election for all stakeholders and eligible voters. Additionally, we have reserved space for ads and weekly columns in the West Fargo Pioneer to provide information to stakeholders in West Fargo. District administrators have committed to delivering informational presentations and sessions to PTOs, PTAs, booster clubs, and other community groups. West Public Schools will be holding two community open forums related to the bond referendum; one is scheduled for September 12 at Sheyenne High School and the other is September 18 at West Fargo High School. Both events are open to the public and will include a short presentation and a question/answer session.

  • Any insight into the expansion of roads to manage additional traffic congestion? For example, 52nd Ave from Sheyenne to 45th Street, and Sheyenne Street south to Horace?

    Posted by West Fargo Public Schools on 8/6/2018 10:00:00 AM

    We have been working collaboratively with the City of Horace, Cass County, MetroCOG and the City of Fargo to discuss options for future roadway expansion and construction. We have also been providing information to KLJ Engineering for a traffic study that they are completing for the intersections at County Road 17/64th Ave and County Road 17/76th Avenue. The school district can provide information on our needs, enrollment capacities, initial design layouts, etc. to assist these entities with the proposed road networks, but we are not in charge of design or construction. That work will fall to the other political subdivisions. We will continue to participate in the discussions about the infrastructure needs for the new middle school and high school.
