Master Facilities Plan
In 2002, the Ohio School Facilities Commission completed a building assessment of each school in the district, evaluating the physical condition of the interior and exterior of each building. Lesko Associates Inc. was hired in 2005 to complete a facilities/land use study, which was subsequently updated in 2008 and 2014 to reflect current building costs for Phase II of the Master Facilities Plan. You can view that study here.

A Strategic Planning Committee met throughout 2015 and 2016 to, in part, analyze the district’s facilities and continue the work of the original Vision 20/20 committee. This group worked with the district to finalize an outline for a strategic plan to outline priorities and address our school buildings.
In 2016, voters approved a combination 1.3-mill bond issue and 0.8-mill permanent improvement levy to fund a new, centrally located PK-4 elementary school to replace the district's four aging schools. Westlake Elementary School opens Fall 2019, completing the final phase of the Master Facilities Plan.
The framework that will be developed through is process will help ensure Westlake City Schools is staying on the right track and Educating for Excellence.
