Purpose: 

  • Provide input and recommendations for the design of Parkview Elementary School’s new gym or cafeteria. With the new addition, it is anticipated that some renovation or improvements of the current kitchen and serving area will need to be considered as part of the project.
  • Identify other possible building and/or site improvements to be completed if funds allow.
  • Take into consideration that a future bond issue may provide funds for the complete renovation or rebuilding of Parkview Elementary. This may impact which type of space to construct and the location of the new space.
  • Help communicate and gather input from stakeholders including staff, neighbors, community members and parents.

Basis for Establishment: 

  • Voters approved a bond on Nov. 5, 2013 that includes funding this renovation project. 

Decision-Making Process:

  • Advisory to the superintendent

Plan of Work and Timeline: 

  • Meet approximately five times from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
  • Work with project designers on location and design elements.
  • Host a community input meeting or gather feedback in January as needed on draft recommendations.
  • Make recommendations to superintendent by Feb. 1, 2015.
