Document Description
The Proposed Project would renovate and modernize the existing campus to develop new and renovated facilities that would support a project-based learning approach at McKinley ES that would expand instructional strategies currently in place within the District and would address future learning that is flexible, adaptable, and project-centered in its delivery. The Proposed Project would be constructed in three phases and would occur over approximately 5.70 acres of the 6.48-acre campus. Redevelopment and modernization of McKinley ES includes the demolition and removal of some existing structures, renovation of structures to remain, and construction of two new buildings and outdoor facilities. 11 existing portable classrooms (B1 through B11), playground restrooms, one modular building (Building D), and one elevator (serving Building B and C) would be selectively demolished and removed as part of the Proposed Project, for a total of 82,505 square feet of demolition over 3 phases. Each phase of the Proposed Project is dependent on funding availability. Phase 1 is funded, and design is complete. The Proposed Project would provide 14 new classrooms, new and reconfigured playfields/playgrounds and parking lots, for a total of 137,030 square feet of building space on the McKinley ES campus. At completion, the Proposed Project would result in a total of 33 classrooms, from preschool through fifth grade, including special education, and dedicated outdoor play areas for preschool through kindergarten for a total of 182,284 square feet of building space.
