The proposed project includes the interior renovation of 14 classrooms plus the addition of one portable classroom to Bayside S.T.E.M. Academy. This modernization would support the transfer of approx. 250 K-5th grade students from Parkside Elementary School to Bayside S.T.E.M. Academy (which are 0.4 miles apart).
The renovations/modernization primarily involves repartitioning walls and constructing new smaller amenities for the children (e.g., replacing sinks). Existing floor area in any building would not increase by more than 2,500 sq. ft. (Class 1). The addition of one portable classroom would not increase the original student capacity of the Bayside S.T.E.M. Academy by more than 25% or 10 classrooms (Class 14).
