FAA – Annual Facility Plan


A. Drafting and Adoption. Each year, the School Board shall adopt an updated Facility Plan. The first Facility Plan shall be adopted no later than November 15, 2021, with an updated plan approved by the Board by June 1 of 2023 and each year thereafter.

The Facility Plan shall be developed and drafted by the Superintendent or his/her designee, and it shall be proposed to the School Board for comment and adoption at least 30 days prior to the adoption deadlines articulated above.

B. Contents of Facility Plan. The Facility Plan shall account for each facility owned by the District and document the use of each such facility.  For each then unused facility, the plan shall specify any uses intended within the next two years of the annual plan approval relative to academic purposes, extracurricular activities, administrative functions, and/or sports. Facilities for which no current or intended use is included on the plan shall be referred to in this policy as “Unused Facilities”.

C. Annual Report to N.H. Department of Education. The Superintendent shall submit a report of Unused Facilities to the New Hampshire Department of Education, with the first such report due January 1, 2022 and subsequent reports due July 1 each year thereafter.  Pursuant to RSA 194:61, such Unused Facilities are then encumbered by a right of first refusal (“ROFR”) available to every approved charter school operating in New Hampshire.  The specifics of the ROFR are described in RSA 194:61, III-VII.
