Mountain Valley School Design
The design process for the new PreK-12 school at Mountain Valley is underway! We have assembled a fantastic team and are quickly making progress towards realizing the hopes and dreams for the future of our school and community.
Design Advisory Group member Bobbie Baughman shares her thoughts on school site use and placement.
After a transparent and competitive interview and bidding process, Mountain Valley School District has hired NV5 as owner’s representatives, TreanorHL as the architectural and engineering firm, and FCI Constructors. This team is a great fit for our school and community, and I am excited to be working closely with them during the design and construction of our new school.
Eric Frey discusses site design with the Design Advisory Group.
Additionally, over 15 community members have volunteered to serve on the Design Advisory Group (DAG). The DAG met on December 6th for around three hours and discussed hopes, dreams, goals, visions, opportunities, and challenges around the new school design. It was a great first meeting full of enthusiasm and optimism as possible school placement and designs were discussed and modeled.
The Design Advisory Group (DAG) process will be completed in four or five meetings.
One of the responsibilities of DAG members is to solicit feedback from various stakeholders in the community and relay that information to the design team. If you would like to share your thoughts and ideas before our next community meeting, please contact one of the following DAG members: Amber Johnson, Aubrey Hill, Julia Hammel, Kathy Hill, Lacy Reed, Lisa Jaminet, Bobbie Baughman, Marilyn Fenton, Mark Hammel, Mona Lovato, Paula Lujan, Peggy Williams, Yvonne Morfitt, Eric Frey, May Engquist, Chuck Tidd, or Travis Garoutte. It is important that the new school design includes input from all stakeholders. In the end, we want a school that meets the needs of our students and community.
The Design Advisory Group examines various school models and layouts.
These are exciting times for our students, staff, and community. I encourage everyone to visit with DAG members, attend community meetings, and take an active role as we design and build a new school at Mountain Valley.
Have a great week!
Travis Garoutte, Superintendent
