Welcome to the Chisholm Rebuild Site!
This site will provide updates to the public on the process of rebuilding Chisholm Elementary School. As a result of the successful passing of the half-cent sales tax extension, Chisholm will be entirely rebuilt except for the newest structure on campus, classroom building 16. It is a nine-classroom building housing our fourth and fifth grade classrooms, plus a computer lab.
On January 19th, the first of three Community Information Meetings was held in the Chisholm cafeteria. Over 100 interested members attended including parents, staff and community members. The firm of Rhodes and Brito Architects of Orlando have been School Board approved to be the architects for the project. At the meeting they were introduced, gathered input from the attendees and shared information about the design and planning process. I will be meeting with the architect Byron Lastrapes of the firm along with district staff every other week as part of the process.
A stakeholder committee representative of school teachers and staff has been formed to participate in the planning process. The next Community Information Meeting will take place in mid-March. More information on the specific date and time will be forthcoming. Meanwhile any inquiries regarding the design and planning process may be directed to me.
