Pasco 4 New Prototype Schools Large library/media centers with generaluse computers. Pasco school district officialssay SCMs prototype designs have helped it save over $6 million in http://www.scm-ae.com/schools/pasco4.htm
Extractions: Pasco, Washington Rowena Chess Elementary School was the last of four new 2-story, 47,000 SF elementary schools designed for the Pasco School District as prototype school designs. The other three were Emerson, Frost, and Whittier Elementary Schools. Sites vary from 10 to 15 acres in size, including parking, bus pickup, playfields and play apparatus. Construction cost for the first three schools was less than $15 million. Each school features 25 classrooms, administrative offices, library/media center, production kitchen facilities, a combined multipurpose/commons room, stage, and gymnasium. Costs were slashed by having their multipurpose/commons with stage separated by a folding wall from the gymnasiums. The gym is smaller than that of most schools, but the folding wall opens up for larger activities. The concept leads to huge savings in construction costs.

Extractions: MSDE Bulletin Keeping You Current on Education Reform in Maryland September 18, 2000 Vol. 11, No. 11 Full-Day Kindergarten a State Board Priority The Maryland State Board of Education has voted to make full-day kindergarten one of its budget request priorities in the upcoming year. If the plan to phase in the program over three years is approved by Governor Parris N. Glendening and the Maryland General Assembly, Maryland would become the fifth state (plus the District of Columbia) to implement full-day kindergarten. Although approximately 97 percent of each year's state school budget is mandated by funding formulas, the remainder is driven by priorities set by the Board. At its August meeting the Board voted to include approximately $20 million among its $133 million in unfunded requests for FY2002 for the first year of the kindergarten program. Starting with the 2001-02 school year, the plan would require approximately $65 million total over the program's first three years. The goal is to establish full-day kindergarten in all state public elementary schools by the 2003-04 school year. "Just a few years ago, we did not have the overwhelming research that we have today that tells us the importance of early childhood learning," said State Superintendent of Schools Nancy S. Grasmick. "Statewide full-day kindergarten carries some expense, but it is one of the best investments we can make toward the education of future generations of Maryland children."

Through this expanded program, and in partnership with the District of Columbia Public Library Children's Services (DCPL), TTP is seeking to increase the academic achievement of District of Columbia public school students by ensuring that the school library media center becomes an important part of the school community and curriculum. TTP and DCPL will work together to achieve this goal by increasing and upgrading the library collection, and by enabling media specialists and school faculty through workshops and trainings. Why?

Extractions: Kathy Ruhmann lives in a part of southern Illinois where you can't find another certified library media specialist even if you hunt for one. Despite a state mandate, Ruhmann is the only certified school librarian in her district of Sparta, a rural town with five schools and about 1,800 students. She's convinced that an aide will replace her once she retires from the Sparta Lincoln Middle School. After all, that's what happened to two of her colleagues almost a decade ago. Now two aides without teaching degrees staff the town's primary and high schools. Ruhmann, who's been a school librarian for 16 years, received her library certification from Southern Illinois University, but the program's no longer being offered. The only on-campus option is to drive 70 miles to Washington University in St. Louis or four hours to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Illinois's librarian shortage is classified as 'severe' in

Home Page Columbia in the Community Collaboration with Public Schools Lisa Mata, Columbia staff member reads every Friday with her P.S. 125 elementary student during Columbia Power Lunch. As an academic institution in New York City, various segments of the University have become involved with the New York City Public Schools. The following gives a sense of the breadth and depth of that involvement. Collaboration with area school districts: A number of new Columbia initiatives have been launched to enhance existing public school outreach and support. Many are forming as the University lays the groundwork for the new Columbia University School, a K-8 lab school that will contribute to the enhancement of area public schools. While the school is still in the planning stages (opening fall 2003 to 650 students), it is the University's hope that the relationships formed now will serve to link area public schools with Columbia-developed educational materials and academic expertise thereby enhancing teaching and learning in area public schools. To date a number of new initiatives have been established between Community School Districts (C.S.D.) 3, 5 and 2. A collaboration between C.S.D. #3 and Impact II, a non-profit organization with a 15-year history of successful professional development in New York City is expected to lead to a substantial private donation to C.S.D. #3. This gift will be used to fund an extensive faculty development program in the area of using new media in the curriculum. The Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning and/or the Institute for Learning Technologies will play a major role in the faculty development program. Website:

Extractions: The Secretary's Conference on Educational Technology-1999 Richland School District #1 South Carolina Richland School District One covers 482 square miles and serves the capital city of Columbia, South Carolina encompassing urban, suburban and rural neighborhoods. A diverse student enrollment of 27,000 students in 51 schools and an equal number of adult education students, give the district its character and strength. Richland School District One has embarked on a significant, aggressive plan to acquire, support and use technology throughout schools and the community. The establishment of the Information Resource Management Department in 1995, combining and expanding the former Educational Technology, Media Services, and Electronic Repair Units, signaled the beginning of the district's focus on the integration of technology in the instructional arena. The successful 184 million-dollar bond referendum in 1996 enabled the district to support new school construction, school renovation and renewal and the establishment and expansion of the district wide technology infrastructure. A three year, four-pronged infrastructure plan, funded by the bond at 9.23 million dollars, was initiated in the spring of 1997 that: created the wide area network with Internet access at all locations expanded all school LANs to all classrooms replaced file servers in every school placed two additional computers in every classroom and 15 computers in every media center.
