PPEL & SAVE Renewal Vote is on November 2, 2021!
Facilities Master Plan 2.0
The Iowa City Community School District is excited to begin the development phase of Facilities Master Plan 2.0 (FMP). Similar to the first FMP, which is nearing completion, FMP 2.0 will become a District-wide, multi-year facilities plan focused on creating innovative 21st Century learning environments across our District. Building off our recently completed work on Portrait of a Graduate, FMP 2.0 will create instructional spaces that help maximize student opportunity and support all students being college, career, and life ready when they leave the District.
On November 2, 2021, the Iowa City Community School District will ask voters to consider the extension of the Revenue Purpose Statement for the Secure and Advanced Vision for Education (SAVE) and the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL). The no new money renewal related to these funding sources allows our District to complete the promise of FMP 1.0 and to embark on Facilities Master Plan (FMP) 2.0 with no tax increase. This extension of SAVE and PPEL also provides funding for District-wide lifecycle projects that would otherwise pull vital teaching and learning dollars from the District’s general fund. Learn more at www.IowaCitySchools.org/FMP2.0 and please vote on November 2nd!
