The outdated media center will be redone, with new paint, carpeting and movable furniture. A wall in the middle of the school office will be taken out to provide more efficient space, and a wall will be removed between two classrooms to create a collaborative space, similar to collaborative learning areas at the new Lakeland Elementary building.
