School board hears report from Chartwells

The new school will accommodate 993 students and has 150,000 square feet, Kelly said.

“Just to give you a number, it is 600 feet from the end of one wing to the other,” Taylor said of the drawings.

“It is a big school, it fills up that lot,” Kelly said.

Park told the board that the drawings were the result of CRA working with the Kate Smith Elementary staff. “They aren’t just something he drew up,” Park said.

Kelly said he met with faculty and staff at KMS twice a week for about six weeks in preparing the drawings. Food Services personnel were also involved in the development of the school plans.

“We’re moving ahead,” Kelly said, adding that the initial submission of drawings to the Department of Education will be made on June 19.
