Good morning, Fairbanks Families and Staff,

Hope you are having a great week! 

In November, Fairbanks Local Schools will be on the ballot to fund Phase II of the Master Facility Plan. The two ballot issues will fund a full renovation of the middle and high school building, a 19,000 square foot addition to the front of the building, a 12,000 square foot multi-purpose competition gymnasium, and infrastructure improvements around campus. 

These plans continue to address the 3 Cs of Facilities in Fairbanks: 

  • Capacity - Enrollment, Classroom Availability, and District Growth

  • Curriculum - Facilities and space that meet needs of learners graduating to college, the workforce, or military.

  • Capital Improvements - HVAC, School Security and Safety, and other Physical Improvements 

To help share information about the Master Facility Plan and the ballot issue, please take a look the district levy web page: November Levy Information Web Page
