New facilities. Minco needs new facilities to accommodate for growth, and we need to examine our needs to better plan for future growth and needs. As mentioned in an earlier article, the student population has grown to over 600. The number of middle school and elementary student totals to over 430. We are crowded at the elementary and middle school. We had to move fifth grade to the old high school. The old high school is not a sufficient solution to fix a problem long term. In the near future, we are going to have to adequately plan to best serve the children here at Minco with a good learning environment in suitable classrooms. As we build our technology infrastructure, we must provide areas for STEM growth and personalized learning. School is a different place than forty years ago when I was in elementary. We will provide our students with the space necessary for learning. Safety and security are
absolutely huge in today’s climate. You cannot put a price tag on student safety. We need to change the security standards so that visitors have only one entrance per elementary and middle school. I would like to go to a secure entrance with card entry as well. Another large need is a safe room for the present elementary/middle school campus. Safety in the midst of the storm is so important. Right now a majority of our elementary students are placed in a hallway as the safest place for them in case of a tornado emergency. We must do better. We need a safe-room large enough for our student body at the elementary site. As we have stated numerous times, we have had lots of growth. There is no reason to believe that this trend is going to go away. We need space to grow. We need new classroom space for both middle school and elementary students. It is necessary to stay ahead of the growth as much as possible. New classroom space is needed now which will also be adequate for future growth. In the next few weeks, Minco Public Schools will be unveiling plans to meet the needs mentioned in the last few articles. These are exciting times for our school. We have lots of momentum, and we must keep working to improve education and our facilities.
