Cynthia Brictson and Michael Thurmond were on hand at the Austin Elementary School Council meeting Wednesday where John Jambro, Director of Design & Construction, delivered an Austin Replacement School Update.
Two things are perfectly clear; 1) The school district does not know what to do with the students during the rebuild. 2) The community would like a school with a capacity of 750 students and not a prototypical school with 900 students.
To that end, the district is currently performing a feasibility study to determine if renovation is a viable option. The output of the feasibility study will include
- Renovation and addition cost model
- Conceptual building plan
- Determination of a suitable location for a possible facility expansion
