Group designing District 24 facility has four seats open
Apr 3, 2013 - By Christina George, Staff Writer
Fremont County School District 24 is still looking for individuals to participate in a design charrette Thursday for its new facility.
"We have four spaces left," Shoshoni superintendent Tammy Cox said. "We will be doing the beginning stages of our design. We will look at the site and how the building will best lay out on the site."
Cox said the group will also look at the future K-12 facility's larger spaces -- such as the gymnasium and multipurpose rooms -- and how they could be designed with the most flexibility.
"It's the preliminary big design with no details," Cox said.
The meeting is 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at the district office's boardroom, 112 W. Third St. Dinner will be provided.
Staff interviews and space programs have defined the possible spaces for the new school. The next step is the charrette exercise, which will be an interactive and hands-on type workshop where those involved participate in figuring out the layout.
The new Shoshoni school is set to accommodate 500 students and be 135,724 square feet. The facility will open in 2020 on property near the airport.
Anyone interested in participating is asked to call Nicole at the district office at 876-2583.
