Under this plan, a new Pre-K-5 school will be built near the Green Hill Road campus and Brown Intermediate will be converted into a K-5 school. The Town Campus Learning Center (TCLC), Jeffrey Elementary, and Ryerson Elementary schools will be taken offline. Both Ryerson and TCLC will be demolished.
New Construction/ Renovations
The new building will house grades Pre-K- 5 for students and families in the southern half of town. The school facility will meet current space, security, and indoor air quality standards and provide students and teachers with modern learning environments. If the project is approved, a building committee of community volunteers will have final say over project architect selection and the finer design details of the building. The PreK-5 building will be constructed on parcel of land accessed by Mungertown Road. Moving the building off of Copse Road will alleviate some traffic concerns in and around the Green Hill Campus.
Approximate building size: 82,000 sq. ft.
Approximate Cost: $61 million
Renovations at Brown will take place over several summers and both a renovated Brown elementary school and the Green Hill Road elementary school will open their doors at the same time. Renovations include changing the entrance to the building, converting classrooms on the ground floor into a kindergarten wing complete with classrooms and private restrooms, renovated spaces for grades 1-5 complete with enlarged windows, and general renovations/improvements to bathrooms, corridors, the outdoor courtyard and parking lot. In addition, the renovation will include significant security upgrades.
Building size: 107,077 sq. ft.
Approximate Cost: $6.2 million
