Ø MIDDLE SCHOOL PROJECT: STATUS REPORT AND DISCUSSION – RHINEBECK ARCHITECTS
Louis Turpin and Phillip Zemke of Rhinebeck Architecture & Planning provided the members of the Board of Education with an overview of the status of the middle school facilities assessment. Following the presentation, members of the board provided guidance and direction regarding the priorities that should be addressed in ensuring that the district employs all feasible means to make this facility comply with the requirements of educating students in the 21st century at a cost the district can afford.
