Scope of Project: The project includes expansion and remodeling of the Julington Creek Elementary School located at 2316 Race Track Road in northwest St. Johns County.

The expansion has been designed to provide both traditional and non-traditional settings. Classroom areas will accommodate groupings of multi-age students using teaching teams, as well as more traditional same-sized groupings. Movable walls opening to a common work area will allow for flexible-sized spaces in this “house” design concept This feature will enable teachers and paraprofessionals to work cooperatively to facilitate learning for students through a variety of activities. The remodeling portion of the project includes enlarging the media center and constructing several additional classrooms. Both portions of the facility will include state of the art instructional technology..
