United Community Primary Entrance Addition

 

Photo Slideshow of Construction

Purpose

 Welcome to United Community School District’s construction update page.  This page will provide information and updates to the districts construction project.

 

Need Identified

Due to growth and safety concerns, the United CSD facilities committee recommended in January, 2016 that the school board explore the building of a single entrance point to the campus and add additional parking.   Current configuration of the campus allows for multiple entrances and limited parking.   Safety of our campus would be addressed by providing only one entrance point that is controlled. 

 

The single entrance addition will house Secretaries, Guidance Counselor, Business Manager, School Nurse and Superintendent/Principal along with a conference room.  All students and visitors to United will enter United through the main entrance, located on the west side of campus, between the FEMA shelter and the current South building.  The North parking lot will be expanded and connected to the South lot to create a flow pattern for traffic entering and exiting.

 

Existing office space will be repurposed into smaller learning areas, as United’s growth is requiring additional classroom space.
