  • Keller
  • King
  • Wequiock
  • Wilder

Adequate and appropriate spaces - $11.45M

  • The District is requesting $2.5M to construct and renovate schools to provide adequate and appropriate spaces for community services. Currently, community partners, such as Oral Health Partners, provide services to students and their families within many of the District’s school buildings. With the $2.5M, the District would begin efforts toward a long-range plan of providing these spaces in schools that are in need.
  • The District has developed a Fine Arts pathway that includes Webster Elementary School Children’s Center for Integrated Arts, Washington Middle School and East High School Fine Arts Institute. All three facilities need renovations to support this educational programming. At Webster the District would construct a stage in the cafeteria/gym, a piano classroom and a multi-purpose room for dance and art - $1.9M. Washington Middle School needs a new stage and auditorium seating, and renovations to support orchestra, art and dance - $3.6M. At East High School, the District would renovate classrooms to support dance, replace the stage floor and construct an art gallery and a blackbox room - $1.2M. 
  • The John Dewey Academy of Learning (JDAL) is the District’s project-based charter school. Currently the school is located at the former Saints Peter and Paul School on the third floor. The $2.25M would be used to address the unique facility needs of the programming.
