    What Is Conceptual Master Planning?
    The conceptual master planning process will determine each school’s overall program needs, site layout, and estimated costs for historic modernization vs. new construction. The early planning effort will help us more accurately determine the cost estimates for the modernization or the rebuilding of that school. This information will help PPS in the planning of future capital improvement bonds.

    What Is Modernization?
    Modernization will completely reconfigure and update learning spaces with a focus on indoor environmental quality, sustainability and historic preservation. Full modernizations retain the historic character of the school while bringing those buildings up to code and concurrently creating a more modern learning environment. In the case of Jefferson, it may be determined that a partial or complete rebuild might be the best approach. This decision will be determined during conceptual master planning.

    Jefferson schedule

    The conceptual master planning of Jefferson High School would begin in the fall of 2019 and complete in the winter of 2019. The schedule for the modernization or rebuild of Jefferson High School has not been determined at this time and would be contingent on the passage of a future school improvement bond.
