The following notice is being provided by the city. Note: I’m told the designs being presented will suggest cutting two classrooms from the scope.
The final MAPS for Kids community meeting for Emerson Alternative School will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10. The meeting will take place in the school’s auditorium, 715 North Walker Avenue, and will cover the final design presentation for the school.
During the meeting, parents, teachers, students, neighbors, community members and school administrators can provide input and share their ideas for the school’s upcoming renovations.
Emerson, established in 1894, will receive over $5.1 million in facility improvements from MAPS for Kids funds.
Funding for the nearly $700 million MAPS for Kids program comes from two voter-approved sources: a seven-year penny sales tax which ended on Dec. 31, 2008 and an Oklahoma City Public Schools bond issue. Once completed, every student in the Oklahoma City Public Schools district will attend a new or fully renovated school.
Those needing a sign language interpreter, language interpreter or disability assistance can call 297-2578 at least 48 hours before the meeting.
This meeting is being coordinated by The Small Group Architecture and the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools (OCMAPS) Trust Project Office. For more information, contact the OCMAPS Office at 297-3461 or visit www.okc.gov/ocmaps.
