Is this master plan reasonable and responsible?

Yes, not only are we repurposing as many buildings as we can, the additional square footage amounts to just over 5,000 square feet. Comparing the school’s growth patterns, per capita square footages, and size of other schools tells a story of modest growth:

Total facilities square footage (s.f.) =

  • 16,652 at ACS today
  • 21,870 at ACS tomorrow (with build-out)
  • Net gain: 5,218
  • Increase: 31%

Student body size =

  • 80 at ACS in 1972
  • 127 at ACS today and tomorrow
  • Increase: 59% 1972 to 2012
  • Increase: 0% 2012 to build out

Per student s.f. =

    • 131 at ACS today
    • 172 at ACS tomorrow
    • Increase: 31%

Compare to:

  • 253 at Aspen Elementary School
  • 241 at Aspen Middle School

Avg. Classroom s.f. =

  • 375 at ACS today
  • 475 at ACS tomorrow
  • Increase: 27%
