  3. Proposal for Non-Traditional Programs Proposal: Proposing the closure of Crim HS and the restructuring of district non-traditional programs to create a new, comprehensive alternative program. This proposal recommends the adoption of a new design for non-traditional programs that includes the performance learning center model, virtual learning and other recovery and acceleration programs. This would include closing Alonzo A. Crim High School and reconstituting West End Academy effective beginning with the 2019-2020 School Year. Crim HS closure would be phased-out in order to allow current 11th graders to graduate from Crim HS in 2020. Principal: Dr. Evelyn Mobley, current principal of West End Academy, will be recommended as the principal of the new comprehensive alternative program. Last Revised 02.27.2019

  4. Rationale for the Changes The consolidation of the existing non-traditional programs would improve both effectiveness and efficiency. The emerging program would be tailored to students and include a combination of face-to-face, virtual and blended instruction. APS currently provides 3 non-traditional options for high school students: These options are intended to provide differentiated supports for students attempting to graduate on time with their cohort.

  21. Facilities Master Planning APPENDIX Last Revised 02.27.2019

  22. Atlanta Public Schools Facility Master Plan (FMP)Guiding Principles Last Revised 02.27.2019 22

  23. FMP: Guiding Principles Communication The District will strive to provide multiple opportunities and varied means of communication tailored to community needs that equip stakeholders with an understanding of the institutional facility investments over time. Community Input The District will strive to provide opportunities for input as part of the decision-making process, as well as educate school communities of the institutional facility investments at specific school sites. Safety & Security The safety and security of APS students and staff is a top priority. The Facility Master Plan (FMP) will support safety and security measures at all District facilities through compliance with all safety codes and regulations. The District will incorporate safety and security best practices in the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of the District’s facilities.

  24. FMP: Guiding Principles Academic Fit The Facility Master Plan is academically-driven, recognizes that physical environment and facilities must support effective teaching, enhance learning, and maximize student achievement. Co-Curricular Support In addition to instructional fit, the Facility Master Plan also supports co-curricular (e.g., physical education, athletics, fine arts, and career and technical education, etc.) goals and strategies articulated in the District’s Strategic Plan and Board Priorities. Educational Equity The Facility Master Plan addresses equity in facilities based on current Educational Specifications for Board-approved programs at the campus level. These facilities will provide students access to quality academic and specialized programming and technology by constructing and/or renovating facilities through a strategic, phased modernization strategy.

  25. FMP: Guiding Principles Fiscal Responsibility The Facility Master Plan will include the protection of the taxpayers’ investment in the District’s facilities through a 10-year, long-term plan with a four-year review cycle for maintenance, repairs and renovations to extend the useful life of existing facilities coupled with the development of parameters for building replacement. Optimal Utilization The Facility Master Plan will identify specific plans and/or remedies to achieve a target range of 75% - 115% of permanent capacity when compared with projected student enrollment, beginning with the opening of the 2019-20 school year and every school year thereafter, and will contain a two-year cycle of review for enrollment projections for subsequent years. Sustainability Photo: The New Schools at Carver Campus The Facility Master Plan will be developed to support and protect the environment and strengthen academics through the use of sustainable and conservation-focused practices for its buildings, grounds and equipment. The plan will be informed by best practices in daily operations of facilities and equipment using green energy, energy efficiency, resource recovery, water conservation, waste minimization and sustainable building practices.
