(January 5, 2009) - Green Pastures Elementary School will host the third MAPS for Kids community meeting at 6 p.m. on January 13, 2009. The meeting will take place in the school’s cafeteria, 4300 N. Post Road and will cover the proposed design planned for the school.
During the meeting, parents, teachers, students, neighbors, community members and school administrators are invited to share their ideas for the school’s upcoming renovation.
The school, which was established in 1954, will receive over $3.3 million in facility improvements from MAPS for Kids funds. The construction project includes the conversion to a pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. The school will be designed to accommodate 369 students.
This meeting is the third of a total of four community meetings that will be held for Green Pastures Elementary before construction begins. The other three meetings include:
Funding for the nearly $700 million MAPS for Kids program comes from two voter-approved sources: a seven-year penny sales tax which ended on Dec. 31, 2008 and an Oklahoma City Public Schools bond issue. Once completed, every student in the Oklahoma City Public Schools district will attend a new or fully renovated school.
Those needing a sign language interpreter, language interpreter or disability assistance can call 297-2578 at least 48 hours before the meeting.
The meeting is being coordinated by Design Architects Plus and the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools (OCMAPS) Project Office. For more information, contact the OCMAPS project office at 297-3461 or visit www.okc.gov.
