Building Our Future:

Pre K-5 Facility

November 2018: Issue 11 Passes – Thank You!

On November 6, 2018, Oberlin City Schools passed a 4.8 mil Bond Issue to construct a state-of- the-art, energy, and cost efficient PreK-5 facility. Once again, we would like to thank our community for your support on passing Issue 11 and making this 10-year dream come into reality. The district is committed to involving our community and stakeholders in the internal and external design of our new facility.

The bond will generate $17.8 million dollars over 37 years. Oberlin City Schools is very excited to begin the project. We will involve and inform our community during all stages of the project. The district developed a board presentation illustrating our next steps.

December, 2018: Request for Qualifications (RFQ) Process

In December, community members and district administrators met to develop a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for an architect. The RFQ will allow architects to submit their qualifications and interest in the project. The Oberlin Board of Education approved the RFQ on December 11, 2018. The district will post the RFQ on our website, newspaper, and on the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) website. Interested architects will submit their RFQ’s between December 14, 2018 to January 17, 2019 to the Oberlin Board of Education. A committee consisting of community members, staff, and administrators will review the RFQ’s and then select an innovative architect, tentatively by February.
