Shaw Middle School To Be Demolished, Rebuilt
On the Shaw Yahoo Group, ANC Commissioner Alex Padro, with the help of Councilmember Jack Evans, confirmed that the city still plans to demolish and rebuild Shaw Middle School. The Master Facilities Plan (PDF of relevant section) that Office of Public Education Facilities Modernization submitted to the Council proposes the demolition and new construction of Shaw Middle School. The Shaw community will have ample opportunity for input on the scope of work for the project: on all projects that involve new construction or major renovations and/or additions, School Improvement Teams ("SIT") are established to work with the Architectural Engineering firm and DCPS to develop the educational programs and space requirements for the school. Construction should begin in 2012.
