Cold Springs Future Site

  • RECOMMENDED OPTION FOR COLD SPRINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 
     
    Our proposal to improve the building is designed to ensure Cold Springs Elementary School students have a facility that meets the educational needs of 21st century students.  When complete, Cold Springs will be a smarter school in many ways, including: 
    • An obvious main entry, secure waiting area, and the ability to observe visitors approaching the building.
    • The building subdivided into secure zones with electronically activated door closers.
    • Adequate parking and safe parent drop-off/pickup zones as well as an appropriate bus loop.
    • An infrastructure that supports robust technology use that is educational and impactful.
    • Flexible learning spaces throughout that accommodate a variety of uses, including the traditional classroom, smaller collaborative groups and 1:1 tutoring, as well as areas for teacher collaboration, centers and storage.
    • ADA compliance throughout, ensuring equal access to the entire facility.
