    RECOMMENDED OPTION FOR LEWIS & CLARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 
     
    Our proposed option to expand Lewis & Clark Elementary School will serve students, teaches, and staff well.  It matches our focus on 21st century teaching and learning.  It is fiscally prudent, in that it addresses key issues now, while enabling the school to evolve classroom and collaborative space as needs and population change in the future.  When complete, Lewis & Clark will be a smarter school in many ways, including: 
    • Ada compliance throughout the facility, including an elevator to the second floor. 
    • A secure and safe front entrance and pickup area for students, parents, staff, visitors and guests. 
    • An appropriately sized lunchroom, where children can take the necessary time they need to get the nutrition they need. 
    • A larger and more flexible library space that can keep up with technology and be used in numerous ways. 
    • Superior collaboration spaces for students, teachers and parents. 
    • Wireless Internet access for classes and staff.
