A special education suite was reconfigured to better meet the needs of the student population.
All classrooms were updated with modern technology and new casework. A new student commons and kitchen were created through a combination of additions and renovations.
On-site vehicular traffic was improved through a new bus loop with expanded dropoff and visitor parking, combined with new electronic signage and entries. All ventilation systems were replaced to meet standards for fresh air and improved efficiency.
