Cedar Falls Community Schools faced several challenges in regards to school facilities. In the next ten years, enrollment is projected to grow by 16.7%. The district has done a remarkable job maintaining the existing facilities, however, there’s no room for growth and several of the facilities are already over-taxed with too many students. From the plan: “The FI master plan is a holistic view at all facilities in the district. Before any building decisions are made, it is important to think long-term and to look specifically at the future of education in Cedar Falls. Education is changing in Cedar Falls as it is throughout the nation. Decisions should not be based solely on enrollment growth but also on fostering learning.”
