The mission of Planning is to facilitate sound decision-making by the Board of Education
and CCSD Administration in several areas of District operations:
Student Population Growth
Land Property Management
Leased Property Management
Cell Tower Lease Initiation and Management
Student population growth management is supported by demographic research, development
of student population projections, and dissemination of information in a variety of forms.
When necessary, the department plays a significant role in school attendance zone
redistricting initiatives. Redistricting becomes necessary when student population load balancing is required
due to new construction and overcrowding, for example.
The department initiates and leads the process of negotiation for new land acquisitions, rights
of way and easements, and maintains property ownership records and land use contracts for the District.
Although it rarely occurs, if land is sold by the District, the department may become involved with that process.
The department maintains relationships with those who lease property to the District,
and initiates new leases and renewal of existing leases when necessary.
The department is directly responsible for cellular communication tower placement
initiatives and ongoing administration of that program for the District. This initiative provides significant
additional direct revenue for schools where cell towers are placed, and shares the total revenue with all schools.
Information provided by Planning include tabular statistical reports, geographic maps of
attendance zones, and other maps. See the FAQ's below for a sampling of what's available. All the map products are shown
in Adobe PDF format and may be downloaded free of charge.
