New School Design for Current Woodburn Site to Have a Public Showing

The public is invited to view architectural schematics for a new green school designed for the current Woodburn site on Wednesday, June 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church on 456 Spruce Street.  The New Woodburn Community School Initiative is sponsoring the showing.  All are invited to attend.  Woodburn parent and LEED AP, Chris Haddox, will present the proposed design to the public.  The Monongalia County Board of Education has persistently said that a new school could not be built on the current four-acre site of Woodburn Elementary.  Please come view how it may be done.

The proposed design accommodates 450 students in a school to be built on the current site through phased construction. Meeting West Virginia School Building Authority criteria, the design includes a bus pullout for up to five buses at one time, a separate parent drop off, appropriate parking, modern facilities and playgrounds which overlook the Deckers Creek watershed.  Please view The New Woodburn Community School Initiative for more information at
