Preliminary plans show additions and renovations to RPHS
The School Board recently reviewed plans for additions and renovations to the south high school. The plan, which includes new construction of about 100,000 square feet, would allow the District to accommodate all students in grades 9-12 in one school. The preliminary building plan includes a two-story addition at the north end of the building. The plan includes a dedicated area for freshman core classes, a new library media center, additional space for fine arts and performing arts classes, and relocation of some classrooms and offices. The latest plans also include construction of a storm-resistant concrete dome structure on the east side of the building. The dome would include an auxiliary gym, restrooms, and locker rooms and would also serve as a shelter for students and staff in the event of severe weather. See preliminary floor plans: http://www.raypec.k12.mo.us/index.aspx?NID=1040For three months, a team has been meeting to create a building addition and renovation plan for the south high school. The goal is to have a design ready to implement as soon as possible, pending voter approval of the no-tax-rate-increase bond issue on the April 5th ballot.
