In the fall of the 2010, the STC School Board requested a facility study to be completed of all buildings in STC. Many changes and upgrades were made since that time to our existing facilities. One of the strongest recommendations from the study was to replace the portable buildings at the high school. A design team was developed in the spring of 2014 to look at the cost and possibility of removing the portables and remodeling the high school. The design team studied the many structural and academic needs in the current high school. The team considered several options. Five different designs emerged including recommendations for the addition of six classrooms needed to replace the portables. All designs included an elevator for ADA compliance and additional restrooms. The design team also explored the possibility of a new kitchen, an indoor concession area, new art and music rooms, a new auditorium, vocational labs, collaborative learning spaces for students, a student lounge, a technology-enhanced learning lab, teacher meeting rooms, a remodel of teacher lounge, special needs rooms, a library remodel, and new science labs. In the end the design team decided to add seven new classroom to replace the classrooms in the portables, two science rooms, an elevator, a student lounge and collaborative space, a small meeting room, two new bathrooms, an elevator, and a remodel of the library and art rooms. Community members have expressed concerns and interest in learning more about the facility. The HS Designs are on display at all STC schools, as well as at the: •Tama Civic Center •Tama Library •Toledo City Clerk’s Office •Toledo Library For more information, please attend public meetings: 1. STC Central Office, April 29th, 9:00 a.m. 2. STC High School, May 3rd, 6:00 p.m.
