Long Range Facilities Advisory Committee


The purpose of the committee is to develop recommendations for the APS Board of Education for an ongoing long range facility plan for Aurora Public Schools. Other charges may be periodically assigned by the APS Board of Education or the Superintendent of Schools. The committee is nonpartisan, nonpolitical and nonsectarian.


Committee members, appointed by the APS Board of Education, are composed of:

  • Parents/patrons of APS who are not employed by the district
  • APS teachers from the elementary, middle and high school levels
  • APS Support Services employees
  • APS site administrators
  • Local government representatives with planning/zoning background

LRFAC members are appointed by the APS Board of Education for two year terms and work with the assistance of a nonvoting staff director who assists in coordinating the work and preparing reports of the committee.

LRFAC and Blueprint APS

The LRFAC will be serving as a steering committee over Blueprint APS implementation. The LRFAC will oversee the work of seven Regional Design Teams (RDTs) and make recommendations to the Board of Education about repurposing and use of buildings. The LRFAC charge as part of Blueprint APS includes:

  • To monitor and advise Regional Design Teams as they evaluate regional strengths and areas of focus and as they make recommendations for use or repurposing of facilities;
  • To evaluate and coordinate the recommendations of the Regional Design Teams from a District perspective;
  • To analyze the feasibility of the Regional Design Teams’ recommendations or other options as the Committee sees fit and to provide such analysis to the Board of Education and/or the District Leadership Team for consideration;
  • To hold the Regional Design Teams accountable to their scope of work within the Blueprint APS process; and
  • To make final recommendations to the Board of Education after consultation with the District Leadership Team.
  • Monthly meetings scheduled specifically for the Blueprint APS charge.
