Project Considerations

EASD sought solutions that aligned with the overarching goal of maintaining the quality of our educational offerings in a fiscally sound and sustainable manner. The following Guiding Principles were used to help district administration and the school directors identify the solution to renovate Bainbridge and Rheems Elementary Schools:

  • Population density of our students
  • Geographic location of our schools
  • The elementary population as a whole
  • Building capacity, age and conditions of our schools
  • Equity of our educational offerings at each building
  • Transportation, maintenance and security
  • Maximizing the efficiencies of our operations and schools.
