Greenville Central School District Master Plan
Greenville, New York
The Greenville K-12 schools are currently housed in a 1932 Elementary School and a Middle School and High School building constructed between 1968 and 2002. In 2007, the District formed a Long-Range Planning Committee with the stated goals "to make the education of Greenville students great by developing a common vision of a quality education and to recommend a long-term plan to achieve greatness." Stieglitz Snyder Architecture was hired to create this plan.
The plan proposes to expanded or provide new programs in Alternative Education, Special Education, Early Childhood Programs, a Student Intern Business Incubator, Project-Based Learning, Adult Services Programs, Aquaculture and Agriculture Development Labs, all of which are infused with 21st Century technology. Accompanying the programs are new Visual and Performing Arts Centers with music, art and theater components; a Media Center focused on self-teaching and teacher assistance; a Health and Wellness Center with new pool, gymnasium, running track and fitness center; and new playing fields sized for competition.
These components of a quality education were developed into a plan that provides 182,000 square feet of new construction area that connects the existing buildings into a single complex. The plan also incorporates ground source heat pump systems and photovoltaic solar panels for energy efficiency. Preparation of the master plan looks 15 years out and envisions a K-12 campus supportive of community activities that enrich education and ultimately economic growth.
