Presentation from 6-21-17 Elementary Reconfiguration Committee

At the June 21, 2017 Elementary Reconfiguration Committee meeting, Studio Jaed Architects made a "high-level" preliminary presentation to the committee regarding possible options for the elementary reconfiguration project. The presentation lists potential opportunities and challenges for each option. The presentation also includes a very early draft of what a timeline could look like, with construction not beginning until April 2020 and construction completing in September 2022. It's important to note that much of this information can change, particularly if the project is scheduled in phases.

Based upon feedback from elementary reconfiguration committee members and the attendees at the meeting on 6/21/17, Studio Jaed will present a revised version at the Community Public Forum that is being held on Wednesday, 6/28/17 at 7:00pm at Smithfield High School in the cafeteria. All parents and members of the community are encouraged to attend to share their feedback and concerns.

Please see the RECONFIGURATION OPTIONS page to view the Studio Jaed presentation from the 6/21/17 Elementary Reconfiguration Committee meeting.
