Facilities Task Force News

Do you want running water and REAL bathrooms in our stadium? Do you think turf is needed?
How about adequate lighting and sound in the auditorium?

Century needs your voices - this is a unique chance to express Century’s needs and get them addressed!

Please attend the Superintendents Task Force – Citizen Voice Input Session
on Wednesday, November 7 from 5:30-7:30 pm
at the Edison Building in the Board Room.

How can you participate?

  • The meeting is open to the general public and those who choose to attend will have a chance to give feedback in a small group setting. 
  • If you are unable to attend, the meeting will be available via live stream on the Rochester Public Schools You Tube channel (@ISD535).  During the live broadcast, community members can also give input on the question/submit feedback electronically.

Some background on the issues:

Rochester Public Schools is looking at a possible referendum in 2019.  In the “other additional needs of the district” there is discussion of funding stadium renovations at Century and John Marshall and a pool at Century.  This is a chance to explain the importance of turf fields at Century and John Marshall, Century restrooms and concession stand, and a Century pool. 

There is also discussion about a new sound and lighting system at Century, Mayo, and John Marshall in the auditoriums.  This is something that is desperately needed at Century!  Unfortunately, nearly all of the Century auditorium house lights have burnt out and are unable to be replaced.  There are several other issues with the lighting/sound in that space.

There is power in our collective voices.  Let’s get a STRONG voice out there that we NEED these things. It’s the EQUITABLE thing to do. ALL high schools in Rochester Public Schools should have similar resources.
