Prior to the board meeting on Monday, the board hosted a reception to celebrate the CCSD59 teachers who achieved tenure at the start of the 16 - 17 school year. The CCSD59 Board of Education would like to congratulate these employees and thank them for their dedicated service to our students and community.
On Monday, September 26, 2016, the Facility Planning and Advisory Committee discussed two potential facilities projects being recommended for the summer of 2017.
First, the committee reviewed options for an addition at Devonshire Elementary School which would create a new main office complex. The addition would result in Devonshire having a similar office layout to all the other CCSD59 schools. There would also be interior renovations for additional classroom space and upgrades throughout the building.
Second, the committee discussed renovating classrooms at Friendship Junior High which would eliminate the need to walk through one classroom to gain entrance to another. Classroom walls that are currently metal would also be replaced with a new insulated wall system which would prevent noise permeation between classrooms.
Both recommended projects will be presented and discussed with the board at the upcoming board meeting on October 11 .
