About bond issue for Shaker Schools

Creation of the plan was guided by four basic principles:

1. Provide our students and staff modern, safe and comfortable learning and teaching environments.

2. Improve educational experiences by creating collaborative and flexible spaces.

3. Reduce the number of building transitions student experience. 

4. Provide increased safety and security for our students and staff. 

​For archived information regarding the long-term master facilities planning process, please visit the Long-Term Facilities Planning page.

The creation of the district's long-term facilities plan is part of the Forward Together initiative which brought together Shaker Heights' three taxing entities -- the Shaker Heights City School District, the City of Shaker Heights and the Shaker Heights Public Library -- to develop a shared vision for facilities that meet the needs of the entire community. 


The Forward Together initiative continues to provide opportunities for community engagement and dialogue that directly inform the district’s development of a Long-Term Master Facilities Plan.
