Refresh to Better Serve Students
Originally built in the 1950s, Loganville-Springfield Elementary School was in need of a refresh to better serve its kindergarten through third-grade students. A feasibility review was undertaken to determine the best path forward between new construction or additions and renovations to the existing school. The District determined that additions and upgrades, completed through phased construction, was the best option to meet their needs and stay within budget.
Once complete, the renovated school will include 24 future-ready classrooms and separate dedicated collaboration spaces for each grade level. The center of the building will house the learning commons with an adjacent S.T.E.A.M. classroom and maker space.
Student Safety Considerations
To help with student safety, administrative, common, and public spaces are organized around the main hallway including a new full-size gymnasium, cafeteria, and kitchen. Classroom areas are connected with an education corridor but separate from the more public part of the school. The educational corridor will allow for easy student circulation as well as breakout spaces for the many paraprofessionals and support instructors who directly serve the student population.
Phase one was recently completed and included the addition of new administrative offices, lobby, cafeteria, and gymnasium. Subsequent phases are currently under construction.
