2019 Community Facilities Task Force

  • Shakopee Public Schools' Community Facilities Task Force analyzes pertinent information and examines the use of existing space in the district. The CFTF will then share recommendations for ways to use the existing space. Our Community Facilities Task Force is comprised of a broad cross section of interests from school district residents and parents to district staff and administration.

    The goal of the Task Force is to achieve a thorough understanding of the capacity of existing spaces and the areas where space is available. The Task Force will make a recommendation of the most appropriate use of these spaces to the Shakopee School Board.  The Task Force analysis will include Pearson School and the Central Family Center (CFC).  It will also take into account enrollment trends.
