Demolition & Destruction
Updated: Jul 24, 2019
The long-awaited renovation of KSCS has begun in earnest in order to be ready with upgraded facilities when school begins in August.
On June 2 current and former students, and numerous volunteers, came together for the destruction and demolition of the KSCS education building, preparing to make it better, and more attractive to our students, and community. It was hard work, nobody died.
“The students deserve the best, and the program we intend to have here will be modeled on excellence in every area.”
School was out the previous week, and knowing there was a deadline for the completion of the school to be met in August, the need to take things apart began in earnest, and within a few hours no one who had been there earlier recognized the same space.
Some would ask why we chose to renovate, and why now? The building had become less than excellent, and left much to be desired. As the school board looked at the student body KSCS currently has, made up of amazing young people, and looked to the community for growth, it was recognized the building was a significant barrier to future growth and excellence. The interim board chair, Dean Waterman, stated it well: "The students deserve the best, and the program we intend to have here will be modeled on excellence in every area." The school building is just the first step in the five year strategic plan for excellence.
