Janney Elementary School Project

Janney Elementary School

Project Overview

The modernization of Janney Elementary School was completed in August, 2011. Substantial enrollment increases since 2011, however, have required repurposing of space to accommodate the current school enrollment. The proposed 11,044 sf two story Addition consists of six classrooms to align with the enrollment projections of the school; additionally, the repurposed spaced will be recaptured for its original intended use. The addition is to be constructed on top of the one story portion of the 2011 building Addition at the back of the school. The Addition construction will begin during winter break December, 2013 and will be completed for the beginning of the school year in August, 2014.
