Scope of Project: This project is a classroom expansion to Osceola Elementary School located at 1605 Osceola Elementary Road in the central portion of St. Johns County and is being constructed as part of the District’s Five-Year Building Plan. The eight (8) classroom expansion is an approximately 15,000 s.f., addition to the existing elementary school and has been designed and located on the existing campus to complement the existing school layout and configuration. The classroom expansion will provide permanent replacement student stations which were lost due to the Class Size Amendment and to bring the school back to the District’s design capacity. 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. This classroom expansion will also include state of the art instructional technology.
Total Project Budget: $2,950,000 (includes construction cost, site work, professional services, furniture and equipment)
Funding Source: State and Local Tax Revenues
Estimated Date of Completion: The project is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2011
