Tacoma Public Schools will host an information booth and opportunity for Q&A with the BPE replacement project team, prior to the NETNC Community & Board Meeting. The public is invited to come engage directly with TPS, and the communications coordinator will also provide an update to all attendees during the regular meeting.
In response to some concerns about the revised Browns Point Elementary School Replacement project, the Planning and Construction department worked with TCF Architects to make some adjustments to address core teacher and parent concerns around capacity, location of special education, and proximity of the music room and stage.
Key changes incorporated in this layout since May 18:
-Classroom space has been maximized to include additional classroom spaces, not including two classrooms that are part of the project alternates if funding allows.
-Special education classes have been moved to the first floor in proximity to other support services.
-The music room has been separated from the stage area by moving the wall adjacent to the courtyard.
-The old Browns Point Elementary School building is identified for future preschool, early learning center or other school or community needs.
