  • Installing new ADA entrance to main building.
  • Installing security doors and cameras throughout the building, with security monitors at security desk and main office.
  • Replacing classroom entry doorways and skylights.
  • Installing new flooring (in selected areas), partition walls, acoustical ceiling tile, and lighting fixtures in all classroom spaces.
  • Modernizing the main office, including the Principal’s office, conference room, administrative area, and “welcome” areas. The nurses’ suite will also be enhanced to include an ADA compliant bathroom.
  • Installing new marker-boards, tack-boards, casework, projection screen, audio/video equipment, and Smart Boards.  Install new electrical outlets, voice, data, and CATV ports as required for new classroom configurations.
  • Providing new Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) in classroom spaces and other identified spaces.
  • Installing a new elevator shaft and elevator.
  • Replacing the existing heating units with new ventilation systems in the classroom spaces to ensure year-long thermal comfort of the occupants.
