The Adel DeSoto Minburn Community School District is continuing the process of evaluating district facility needs in light of enrollment growth. In April of 2018, The ADM Board of Education approved the start of a Facility Master Planning process to study enrollment growth and determine future facility needs for the district. A Board-approved committee comprised of community members, teachers, administrators, city mayors and board members was created to study district needs and to provide recommendations.

Over the past 8 months, the committee evaluated current ADM facilities, identified capacity levels for current buildings, studied future enrollment projections, explored neighborhood and attendance center options and developed a draft concept for public input. The committee’s draft concept includes potential grade configuration and building changes to address increasing enrollment and facility needs at ADM.

ADM Schools would like to invite you to attend one of the public input meetings from 6 to 7 p.m. or 7 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the ADM High School Auditorium.
