  • Partnering with the community, and developing new relationships of mutual benefit.
  • Creating a functional and inviting atmosphere that promotes a positive connection with students, staff and community.
  • Recognizing demographic changes within Sioux Falls.
  • Complying with community planning and zoning requirements.

  • Maintaining the relationship between the projected new facilities and those already in existence.
