  • Dassel-Cokato Schools is excited to resume the referendum planning process put on pause two years ago.

    In 2020, the district hosted a series of community groups in which a package of bond projects was presented to the school board.  Unfortunately, the pandemic stopped that progress from moving forward, yet many of the needs have not gone away.  Career and Technical Education (CTE) is still a primary focus but we want to make sure we are addressing and assessing all potential facility needs.  The past two years have shifted the abilities and capabilities of education, so while we want to validate the previous planning efforts, we also want to seek additional insight and feedback from community stakeholders to identify any additional potential needs.

    Helping to facilitate this process are team members from the school district's new partnership with SitelogIQ, a facility planning, design, and management company.  As part of this partnership, SitelogIQ is conducting a comprehensive facilities assessment while at the same time facilitating community groups to learn about, understand and help identify district needs.  This process will ultimately become the project plan designed to fit our educational goals and facility needs.

    Dassel-Cokato Schools will be hosting an Open House on the evening of Thursday, April 28th where people can move between stations, view current spaces and the plan options, ask questions and provide feedback.  The evening stations will include facility infrastructure needs (ex. boiler), CTE (metals, woods, ag., FACS, MS industrial tech), HS Science, collaborative spaces, HS entry, HS Media Center, and elementary needs.

    The Community Open House, hosted on April 28th, was very successful with more than 80 community members attending throughout the evening.  Stations were set up to allow people to move at their own pace, view project plan options, view current spaces, leave feedback and ask questions of both staff and SitelogIQ team members.
     
    In the coming week, both project plan options and the feedback collected will be posted below.   The board has a workshop meeting this coming Monday to begin reviewing plans and options.  Areas being considered include infrastructure needs (ex. replacing the boiler), Career and Technical Education, HS Science, a secure high school entrance, collaborative spaces like the HS media center/commons, and some physical/functional needs within the elementary schools.

    Below are potential project plans created to meet the unique needs of our buildings and students.  Mixed in are comments left by community members during the Open House event hosted on April 28th.   

    These project plans, as well as additional infrastructure needs, were presented to the school board for consideration on May 2nd.  The school board is working to determine the final scope of the bond for the August 9th referendum.  Details will be forthcoming as they develop.  Please continue to check the website as information will be added continuously.
