The Parker Elementary School nine classroom addition designed by Hansen Design / Architects was completed under budget and on time for the start of the 2014-2015 school year. In addition to the new construction, the main building entrance was reconfigured to enhance the security of the school, a former kindergarten room was remodeled into a teacher resource room, and another existing classroom was subdivided into small learning spaces.
All of the new classrooms feature extensive casework, markerboards and tackboards, and individually controlled thermostats. Each of the four kindergarten rooms also include a private toilet room.
The patrons of the Prairie View USD #362 school district passed a successful bond referendum in April, 2013 to fund this and another similar project at La Cygne Elementary School. Nabholz Construction Services served as the construction manager at risk for the project.
