The purpose of the strategic planning process for Brandon-Evansville ISD #2908 is to evaluate the District’s facility needs and identify a path forward to address those needs, ensuring all students have a healthy learning environment and tools they need for success. The input from students, staff and our community members is valued and will make this process successful. 

While the quality of our teachers remains high, our two school buildings no longer meet accepted standards for classroom quality, safety, security, environment or efficiency. Several independent experts have closely analyzed the condition of these buildings in 18 areas identified by the Minnesota Department of Education as important to education. Our buildings only meet today’s standards in one of these areas: technology for middle and high school students. As a result, the school board has been analyzing options for improving our facilities.

In 2017, the school board proposed replacing the existing schools with a single K-12 building. Local voters defeated a referendum that would have funded the bonds needed to pay for construction of that new school. Since then, the school board has been looking at different options to address these needs. It has also completed an enrollment study that has determined that Brandon-Evansville will continue to gain students for the next decade. With resident input and data-driven information, the school board will work to develop solutions for our District’s facility needs.

This website will provide you with the same information the school board is using to evaluate options for a new plan. Information will be updated regularly, based on board discussions. Please review this information and provide comments through the Contact Us page, or by emailing Superintendent Don Peschel at dpeschel@b-e.k12.mn.us or calling 320.834.4084.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS?

The purpose of the strategic planning process for ISD #2908 is to identify, quantify, and prioritize needs within the District while integrating input from all members of our communities, staff, administration, and students.

WHAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS?

The strategic planning process will be a three-phase approach. Phase I of the process includes gathering data and input to better understand the District’s needs. A series of listening sessions and an online survey gathered input from community members, staff, administration, and students. Third-party assessments including facility assessments, ADA assessments, Educational Adequacy assessments, and a demographics study were completed to understand existing conditions and needs. Phase II of the process identifies potential solutions to the District’s needs and aligns them with input from the communities. Phase III of the process is the implementation of the proposed improvements.

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS IN THIS PROCESS?

In January 2019, the firm leading the District through this process, ICS Consulting, will complete Phase I (Data Gathering) and begin to move into Phase II (Solutions Development).
