The first phase of construction planning for Edina Public Schools’ (EPS) Next Generation Facilities is about to begin and the district is looking for involvement from its stakeholders. A Core Planning Team (CPT) is being formed for each of the 10 school sites that will undergo construction, as approved and funded by the passage of the May 5 facilities bond referendum.
The Edina School Board will bestow diplomas on 673 Edina High School (EHS) seniors on Sunday, May 31, at 7 p.m. in Mariucci Arena at the University of Minnesota. The Class of 2015 is the 65th to graduate from EHS.
Senior May Term and May Term for All are in full swing this week as students prepare for the end of the school year on Friday. Senior May Term, a program in which EHS 12th graders either apply for an internship offered by the school, find their own internship or create, plan and execute an educational project of their own design, began May 18 and will last through May 29.
Design process underway!
With the passage of the May 5 facilities referendum, the district is moving forward with the design and implementation phases of its Next Generation Facilities Plan. This phase will include several input opportunities for students, staff, parents and community members as plans are developed to determine overall layout of building design and how different spaces and areas will relate to each other.
