In this week's blog I'm providing some details on the renovations and construction for Ide School.  The Board of Education approved the following design plans on Dec. 12, 2017.  

Open House: The District is hosting a Building Our Future Open House at Ide School on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.  The architects, construction manager, administrators, and board members will be available to provide additional information on the following plans for Ide School, as well as updates for Lakeview and Prairieview. 

Interior Spaces: The plans for interior spaces were presented to the Board on Nov. 14, 2017.  They provide a view of a prototypical classroom, the new learning commons, a new multi-purpose room, and the overall footprint of the school.

Design Plans: The design plans were presented to the Board on Nov. 28, 2017.  They provide an overview of the color palette for the school, exterior views of the new construction, the new parking lot, and samples of the types of materials to be used.

Minor changes: It should be noted that although the plans have been approved by the Board of Education, there still could be minor alterations to aspects of the design, including the color scheme of the external walls.  The architects are working to ensure the renovated school combines the "residential" feel and blends into the neighborhood, while incorporating fun colors to excite the students when the enter the building!

Next Steps: Now that the Board of Education has approved the designs, our architects will spend the next two months preparing bid documents so that construction may begin late spring or early summer of 2018. 

We are grateful for the community support of our schools throughout this process!
