(July 21, 2009) - Linwood Elementary School will host the third of four MAPS for Kids community meetings at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 27. The meeting will take place in the school’s auditorium, 3416 NW 17th Street.
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 built in 1911, will receive over $2.9 million in facility improvements from MAPS for Kids funds. The construction project includes the conversion to a pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students. The school will be designed to accommodate 440 students.
Four community meetings will be held for Linwood Elementary before construction begins. The four meetings cover:
Meeting 1 -
planning and programming
Meeting 2 - schematic design presentations
Meeting 3 - preliminary design presentations
Meeting 4 - final design review
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 Hornbeek-Blatt Architects and the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools (OCMAPS) Trust Project Office. For more information, contact the OCMAPS Trust Project Office at 297-3461 or visit www.okc.gov.
