    Building Our Future

    View Eagle Cam
    The excitement is evident as we plan for our new and innovative student-centered learning space, thanks to the generous support of the New Albany community. Using feedback from staff and community engagement sessions held over the last five months, design concepts have evolved into a learning facility that will serve students for years to come.

    • Progress Continues as We Approach the End of the School Year!

      Posted by Patrick Gallaway at 5/7/2014

      With less than a month to go before the end of the school year, the new facility and the projects associated with it will continue to ramp up for summer work. At the end of April the playground area east of the Middle School cafeteria closed in preparation for the first transformative work to begin to prepare this area for next fall when school begins.  Basketball courts are closed and temporary hoops are available in the bus loop between the middle & the high school as it is closed during the day to traffic. (See related post)

      Work continues on the east wing of the building to prepare it for the partial opening this fall of 12 classrooms to accommodate students.  The exterior brickwork is almost complete on this portion of the building and the focus will now begin on the interior of the structure.  The interior classrooms continue to become defined, the innovative and flexible features of the space, such as the all-glass garage doors for classrooms are being installed and additional work to the exterior of the building and area around this east wing continues.

      Look for video and additional coverage of an exclusive inside tour captured by our student club, the Eagle Media Team in the coming weeks.

      Other exciting advances with this update include:

      • Loop changes to the High School lot and closures that will occur as of June 2, 2014 in the lot between the middle school, 2-5 and the McCoy.  This lot will be closed for a major portion of the summer to reconfigure and provide for a much improved and expanded drop off loop to keep  
      • Developments on the green roof spaces continue as well as the greenhouse that will be located in the middle of the building, second floor.
      • Parking and improvements to traffic flow continue to be addressed with the city to remove cars from the cueing process on city roads such as Fodor and Dublin Granville Rd at the student drop off sites and entrances to school buildings.  
      • Updates on the construction of the new tennis courts.
      • Photos of site visits within the new facility.

    • Spring is Here and Progress Continues!

      Posted by Patrick Gallaway at 4/1/2014
      Now that students and staff have returned from Spring Break, the work on the new learning facility and associated projects continues. As reported to the Board of Education on March 31, 2014, the building is really taking shape and the eastern portion scheduled for partial opening is a primary focus.  The interior classrooms are becoming defined, the innovative and flexible features of the space, such as the all-glass garage doors for classrooms are being installed and exterior brick work is beginning to be put into place.    
       
      Other exciting advances with this update include:
      • Work to the interior core of the building, seeing the rotunda take shape off the main entry.  
      • The STEM & Flex labs are in development in the central core, a feature that will eventually be available to students K-12.
      • The large green roof spaces are in development as well as the greenhouse that will be located in the middle of the building, second floor. 
      • It's time to Play Ball! - relocation of the softball & baseball fields is complete near the Plain Township Aquatic Center and ready for the season. 
      • Parking and improvements to traffic flow continue to be addressed with the city to remove cars from the cueing process on city roads such as Fodor and Dublin Granville Rd at the student drop off sites and entrances to school buildings.
