Did the district consider other building closure options?
Any building could close, but it was abundantly clear that a building needed to close. The Facilities Committee, focus groups, architect consultant, and administration placed all options on the table and reviewed every school building for its potential and its challenges. Fundamentally, other school buildings can house more students, run more efficiently, and have benefitted from more recent investment in upgrades. Overtime, every assessment pointed to Bryant School as the clear choice for a building closure.
