Facility Master Plan
The district’s strategic plan contains several objectives connected to school facilities and long-range planning. In order to meet these objectives, the district engaged in a process of facilities master planning during the 2022-23 school year.
The facility master plan is an ongoing process to address the following:
- Grade-level Configuration
- Future Facility Needs
- Renovations & Construction
The facilities master plan allows Ankeny Community Schools to build on its tradition of excellence and to set the standard for high-quality student experiences, opportunities, and achievement.
2022-2023 Facility Master Plan Work
On May 15, 2023, the Ankeny Board of Education approved elementary boundaries for the 2024-2025 school year (to accommodate the opening of Abbie Grove Elementary) and a new grade-level configuration below:
- 2024-2025 Elementary Boundaries: Please view the board-approved map here.
- Grade-Level Configuration: Preschool, Elementary Grades K-5, Middle Grades 6-8, High Grades 9-12. (These changes will not take effect for the 2023-2024 school year. A planning committee will be formed to create an implementation timeline.)
2023-2024 Planned Work
First Semester: The district will pursue a community vote to re-establish the Physical, Plant, and Equipment Levy, which is one of the largest funding streams for facility work for Ankeny Schools.
Second Semester: A committee will be established to take on the planning and implementation work for the grade-level configuration transition.
