Students get acquainted with new furniture in the library A series of interior and exterior summer projects enhanced the learning spaces and safety of school buildings. In addition to the largest project, the carpet replacement project at Northbrook Junior High, improvements included:
  • New flexible furniture for Northbrook Junior High Library. The adjustable tables and chairs are on casters so they can be easily moved around to accommodate different activities.
  • Safety improvements at the junior high include replacing an emergency generator and upgrading some of the hallway fire doors.
  • Landscaping was replaced around the perimeter of Greenbriar School to improve safety; green areas were enhanced around the playground.
  • Two smaller learning spaces were combined to create a new classroom at Westmoor School for the Young Explorers Foundations program, which opened this year.
  • WiFi Internet capacity is being improved at all four schools. Over the summer, work was completed at three schools with additional access points and improved cable networks to enable use of mobile devices. Work continues this year to complete the project at Westmoor School.
