Master Facility Plan Oversight Committee

How it works:

The Master Facility Plan Oversight Committee will monitor and report to the Board of Education the District’s compliance to the Master Facility Plan as funded by a variety of sources, including but not limited to the State-wide School Option Sales Tax (SILO) and the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL).  The committee will oversee the District's commitment to use $40 million in SILO Funds for property tax relief.  The Committee will provide counsel to District administration to help promote within the Cedar Rapids community, District activities related to this charter wherever possible. 


Monitoring activities for the Committee will include a determination of timely completion within scope and budget of all Board approved, Facility Master Plan projects.  The Committee will also review the District financial reports accounting for both revenues and expenditures related to the Master Facility Plan.


The committee will remain active as long as there are public resources available to the Cedar Rapids Community School District for the improvement, repair, and maintenance of District-owned infrastructure.
