Prop 1:  Project Completed
On April 6, 2021, the Meramec Valley R-III voters approved the Proposition 1 no tax increase bond issue. One of the many Prop 1 projects started this month is the improved ADA accessible playgrounds with rubberized surfaces for the district’s five elementary schools.

In early May of 2021, elementary principals met with stakeholders from their building to design a playground that best fit their school’s needs. The teams looked for ADA playground equipment and surfaces that would be accessible via ramps, barrier free travel routes, a range of accessible play options, and appropriate surfaces.  While each school’s current playground area is unique, individual schools worked to create a play experience where all children could be free to participate in the outdoor play areas.

We appreciate the voters' support on Prop 1 to allow MVR-III to upgrade playgrounds for all elementary schools. Some playground pieces being replaced dated back to the 1970s. The new playground structures and surfaces are a great addition to all our elementary schools.

Zitzman Elementary Draft Facility Plan

Promise, Purpose, Progress, & Safety

PROMISE:  Proposition 1 is a $17.9 million no tax levy increase bond proposal for the continuation of capital projects across the district. The District’s long-term plan for facilities requires the use of capital improvement funds that will be made available through the passage of Proposition 1. Capital funds are limited due to the fact that 95% of the operational budget expenditures are committed to personnel, purchased services (i.e., utilities), and supplies.  

PURPOSE:  Funds generated by passage of Proposition 1 will be used for capital expenditures such as a major school addition to Zitzman Elementary, roofing and HVAC needs at multiple buildings, safety/security upgrades at all schools, technology upgrades, school buses, STEM labs, and other facility improvements.

PROGRESS:  The largest project is the expansion of Zitzman, which will include a beautiful new main entrance facing Indian Pride Drive, as well as new kindergarten and first grade classrooms, a full size gymnasium, library expansion, a safe room used as a storm shelter, improved parking, and safety and accessibility enhancements. Entrances at each school will be secured with vestibules and video surveillance systems. Visitors will be admitted through the exterior door and must check in with a staff member immediately upon entry before gaining access to the rest of the school. All elementary schools will have improved ADA accessible playgrounds with rubberized surfaces.  Improved parking for Nike and Robertsville Schools and a full size track for Riverbend Middle School are also possible.

SAFETY:  All buildings will have secure vestibules installed that will include electronically controlled entry devices, secured windows, and video monitoring.  The district will also install improved security measures with video monitoring.
