Discussions are underway by the GCSD Facilities Committee for a potential facilities upgrade plan focused on improving learning opportunities, enhancing safety and security for students and staff, and replacing or updating aging infrastructure. The committee, comprised of parents, teachers, students, administrators and key stakeholders, has met twice to review and develop the scope of the work that will be included in a capital improvement project proposal for board consideration.
To date, presentations have been delivered by Clifford Nooney, GCSD Director of Facilities, and Natalia LeMoyne, Coordinator for Instructional Technology. Preliminary discussions have focused on improving instructional learning technology as well as upgrades or replacement of heating and ventilation systems, bathrooms, classroom cabinetry and storage, roofs, lighting, windows, flooring, lockers, security systems, and playground equipment. Also under consideration are art and technology lab renovations, outdoor classroom pavilions at each building, and the replacement of the high school track along with the addition of a turf field.
The Board of Education will be considering adopting a final proposal at its July 1 reorganization meeting. If adopted, the district would bring the capital project proposal to voters for approval sometime this fall. The Facilities Committee will hold two more meetings prior to the Board of Education meeting on July 1; they are scheduled for June 24 and June 29.
