Teacher Collaboration Spaces

Following the passage of Placer High School’s Measure G Bond Resolution last year, PUHSD has been assessing the school’s current and future facility needs. We initially researched the cost and feasibility of constructing a new classroom building on the lower Placer campus, with a focus on maximizing the value of Measure G bond funds. 

Throughout a collaborative process with staff and stakeholders, it became clear that due to rising construction costs and our desire to increase utilization and stretch our dollars further, we can better maximize campus usage and improve student learning by constructing collaborative teacher spaces and enhancing student learning areas rather than constructing a single classroom building. 

These spaces would be organized by department, and equipped with the resources necessary to facilitate teacher collaboration, foster relationships and optimize articulation across disciplines.

21st Century classroom learning environment

By taking this approach, more bond funds will be available to upgrade existing classrooms and facilities with additional 21st Century furniture and state-of-the-art technology. This 21st Century classroom design provides a flexible, collaborative learning environment, allowing students and teachers to work independently or in teams, which will ultimately lead to an increase in positive student outcomes.

Timelines:

In the very near future, we will ask our teachers to engage in this process to help us determine the types of furniture and technology that best suits them and their students’ needs. Additionally, our teachers will be part of the collaborative space design process, with the intention to have the spaces completed and operational by summer 2020.
