Facilities Committee

In April of 2023 Father Jirovsky pushed forward the initiative to create a Facilities Committee at Bishop Neumann high school. The four main goals given to this committee by administration were;

1) Identify and prioritize short term facility projects

2) Create a campus facilities master plan

3) Develop and recommend maintenance and replacement schedules

4) Communicate with SCS stakeholders on facility recommendations and projects

The committee has been meeting frequently (in and outside of the meeting structure) since April of 2023 to execute past-due projects and to address issues that have been uncovered.

Please see the meeting minutes and members below. Many of these members were selected by their experience in corporate facilities, construction, maintenance, and finance. Please contact any of the lay members of the committee to get updates in regards to BN facilities.


2024 GALA “Blue-Sky”: Creating a Distance Learning Lab and moving the Resource room.

At Bishop Neumann, supporting students with diverse learning needs is a top priority. Every student, whether struggling or excelling, deserves dedicated resources to thrive. That’s why the Facilities Committee has prioritized the creation of a Learning Lab, carved out from the north end of the Library.

Our Vision: The envisioned Learning Lab will serve as a multifunctional space, accommodating Mrs. Murren and the Resource Room. Additionally, it will be equipped with additional computers and technology to function as a Distance Learning area to allow us to offer more advanced and AP-level courses to those students excelling. This setup will provide students taking online courses with access to teachers from across the country.

Your Support Matters: With your generous support, we aim to create an environment that meets the unique needs of all our students. Together, we can ensure every student receives the support they need to succeed. We are asking for $50,000 (including matching funds) to get started on this project. But early estimates put this project at $100 – $125,000. Once we reach $50,000 we will start on this project. If it’s funded early we will strive to start this summer 2024. If not, we will plan on the summer of ’25.
