The Mason City Schools Facilities Committee considered 10 options, including one option to do nothing.
In March 2014, the Mason City School District released its Facility Master Plan proposal.
- The Mason Early Childhood Center would serve students in grades PK-2.
- The Mason Intermediate School would serve students in grades 3-6.
- Mason Middle School would continue to serve students in grades 7-8.
- Mason High School would continue to serve students in grades 9-12.
The proposed plan eliminates splitting grades and lessens the number of transitions students make, while providing flexibility so that the district’s facilities address the needs of Mason's learners today and 50 years from now. Most likely, full implementation of the master plan renovations and investments won’t occur for 4-5 years.
“We are not planning new school buildings and will not ask voters to approve a bond-levy; instead, we must decide where we need to invest and renovate (and determine if we should close an additional school) so that all of our children benefit from safe, technology-ready, high-quality schools,” said Dr. Gail Kist-Kline, superintendent.
