Byrneville Elementary Building Committee Talks Multi-Million Project

May 26, 2017

An organizational building committee meeting was held Thursday afternoon at Byrneville Elementary School, with group mostly comprised of teachers offering their ideas for a new school building.

The charter school is considering the construction of a new multi-million dollar modern building containing some number of classrooms, likely a cafetorium and possibly even a small gym.

Participants discussed the need for a building with at least 8-10 classrooms with separate bathrooms for kindergarten students.  The largest building on the current Byrneville campus was build in 1941 and contains five classrooms, plus offices and a cafeteria.

Teachers also expressed their desire to see a multipurpose room and perhaps a modern lunchroom, making way to move the charter school’s library from a portable into the current lunchroom.

“The is a great opportunity for us,” Principal Dee Wolfe-Sullivan said the possible building project. “Our enrollment is steady and the population growth in the county is coming this way.”

The school’s board of directors will meet at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31 to continue discussion on a new building. The meeting is open to the public.
