The Oswego Community Unit School District 308 School Board will have its hands full of information Monday night at its regular meeting planned for 7 p.m. in the community room.
RSP & Associates, the group hired by the district to complete an updated enrollment study regarding a proposed third high school, will deliver its report to the board. According to board documents, district enrollment for the 2011-12 school year is 16,832, and projected for 2012-13 at 17,317, 2013-14 at 17,730 and by 2020-21 at 20,845.
Projections for the high schools alone show OHS at anywhere from 2,511 to 2,877 students by 2015-16. This figure is based on student residence information and not student attendance numbers. Student attendance figures show a possible range of 2,276 to 2,634 for the same year. Capacity for OHS is shown at 2,400.
For OEHS, also with a 2,400 capacity shown by RSP, 2015-16 numbers show a range of 2,454 to 2,681 students based on residence information and 2,623 to 2,842 based on attendance information.
The board will also hear presentations from the two architectural firms tasked with delivering projections on additions to OHS and OEHS.
According to preliminary estimates from Kluber Architects and Engineers Bringing OEHS to a maximum capacity of 3,200 students will cost the district $39.4 million. ATS&R Architects will present the board with their plan in six steps for its addition at OHS. Those steps range in cost from $32.6 million to $42.29 million.
Also on the agenda is a vote that would have all district administrator’s paying 20 percent of their monthly health care premiums—a campaign pledge made by Board President Bill Walsh. This would go into affect in the 2012-2013 school year. If the board should negotiate a greater district premium contribution with unionized employees, administrators would be also be subject to that same amount.
