REPAIR FWCS Overview

Maintaining the buildings in Fort Wayne Community Schools is an important component of meeting the district’s goals. Academics are supported by suitable buildings; FWCS buildings are strong anchors in neighborhoods and serve families throughout the community; and being fiscally responsible requires these assets be maintained. Our children deserve well-maintained facilities that meet today’s educational needs, including electrical systems that can handle 21st Century technology, climate-controlled buildings that are more energy efficient and modern classroom space with better lighting and adequate storage. This page will serve as a resource to learn more about FWCS’ buildings and the plan to take care of them for future generations. Check back often, and let us know if you have questions or comments.

As always, we continue to say THANK YOU FORT WAYNE for the opportunity to improve our buildings to a level of modern standards and provide better learning environments for our students and staff!

Presentations and Information

Phase 2

Building on the successes of the Phase 1 School Basic Renewal/Restoration and Safety Projects, needs-only building renovation plan (REPAIR FWCS), REPAIR Phase 2 was resoundingly approved by voters in May of 2016. This second phase of renovations includes major renovations at another 10 school buildings, the addition of air conditioning at 16 school buildings, security improvements at 33 buildings, window replacements at 2 buildings, partial roof replacements at 4 buildings, and parent pick-up lane improvements at 5 buildings. At the completion of this phase of the program, ALL 51 of the FWCS school buildings will be air conditioned.

In order to maintain the tax rate at or below the level established in Phase 1 of the program, the Phase 2 work will be rolled out as debt is retired from previous bond-funded work (North Side HS and Food Service Facility projects that were completed in 2005). The Phase 2 projects are anticipated to be completed in 6-8 years.

Phase 2 Major Renovations

  • Washington Center Elementary - Coming Soon!
  • Northrop High School - Coming Soon!

Phase 1

In May of 2012, voters approved a $119 million, 4-year School Basic Renewal/Restoration and Safety Projects, needs-only building renovation plan (REPAIR FWCS). As a result of this program, 10 buildings have received full renovations, 14 buildings received air conditioning that were not previously air-conditioned, 16 buildings had window replacements completed, and 28 buildings received partial roof replacements. The projects were completed on time and under budget, with $2.2 million in savings, which resulted in a lower tax rate than what was originally approved. The renovations have also resulted in an average reduction in energy consumption of 20% (more than $200,000 per year) and the district has received energy rebates to date totaling over $500,000. Please view the links below for highlights of the major renovation projects included in Phase 1.
