The Richfield Joint School District No. 1 has a number of large-scale significant facility needs that must be addressed in the near future in order to maintain a high-quality learning environment. These items include replacing roofing, deteriorating brickwork, inefficient single-pane windows, unit ventilators and the kitchen air handling unit. Another area includes exhaust fan upgrading to ensure code compliance.
The district has launched an extensive process in order to address the large-scale significant facility needs. Through the Capital Improvement Planning Committee, the School Board has ordered a facilities assessment, and the district developed a long-range facilities plan during the 2014/15 school year.
Based on the district's significant and time-sensitive needs, the School Board m
ay adopt a resolution to increase the revenue limit to implement energy efficiency measures or to purchase energy efficiency products.
