CHESTERFIELD, MO (KTVI) – Ninety-four million dollars could soon go toward building improvements in the Parkway School District. Roughly $20 million of that would improve safety and security.
At Wednesday evening’s school board meeting, Parkway School District Spokesperson Paul Tandy presented the “Facilities 2020” long-range plan to the board. It contains various updates that would be implemented throughout the next decade, from maintenance upkeep such as roof repairs, to new science labs, and beefed up security.
To figure out exactly which improvements were necessary, the district spent the last 18 months gathering data through surveys, town hall meetings, and committees. From this feedback, it was clear that the community has a strong desire to invest in safety and security at Parkway schools, in addition to routine building upkeep.
