Citizens' Facilities Advisory Committee (2023)

  • students working on a project

    Lakewood School District has grown 8.4% since 2016. We expect to grow another 9.4% in the next five years by 2027. That’s 17.8% growth in just over a decade!

    The Citizens’ Facilities Advisory Committee has been meeting since February to explore educational programs and standards, school capacity, enrollment forecasts, school safety, accessibility and more. The committee held a community meeting on April 18 to share its work up to this point. You can watch the Facebook Live video and see the boards from the event below.

    The Lakewood Board of Directors has directed the Citizens’ Facilities Advisory Committee to review the needs of our facilities and provide the Lakewood School Board and community with a recommended road map to guide future capital investments. This community-based work group will recommend short- and long-term capital improvements in the form of an updated Study and Survey.
