About the MVSD Facilities Task Force
The Methow Valley School District Facilities Task Force, co-chaired by Methow Valley Elementary parents Sarah and Erik Brooks, is made up of more than 25 members consisting of students, parents, staff, and community members.
The Facilities Task Force was established in early April because people throughout our school community asked us to take a proactive approach to addressing our facilities needs. Throughout this spring, the Task Force has been learning about the physical condition of our facilities, our aging transportation fleet, educational technologies, how they are funded, and the process associated with voter approved bond and levy measures.
Their job is to present the superintendent with a prioritized facilities plan with a recommended funding mechanism (Bond or Levy) to be put before the voters as early as the fall of 2014. They have project ideas ready to share… now they’d like to hear from you!

Open Houses at Methow Valley Elementary Library
Saturday, May 17, 10 – noon
Monday, May 19, 6-8 pm
During each Open House, we will have members of the Task Force on hand, ready to share information with you about the process, project ideas, tax rates, timelines, and possible next steps. During the Open House, we’ll ask you to consider sharing your feedback in response to our project ideas using the following four questions:
- What do you like most about what you learned here today?
- What are your biggest concerns about the district’s facilities needs
- What questions do you still have?
- Is there any other feedback you’d like to share with us today?
Our goal is to provide a recommendation to the superintendent and school board that reflects a smart investment of our community’s resources. Please stop by for a few minutes or as long as you’d like to learn more about the project ideas that have emerged and share your thoughts.
