The junction between two wings of the building is ac- cented with a chandelier trimmed in stained wood. The district chose a pol- ished and stained concrete and aggregate floor for much of the building. While the cost is about the same as other flooring, the pol- ished concrete will be easy to clean, require less main- tenance and last a long time, Hocker said. "It's a very good feeling to have this project nearly completed," Hocker said. "It was a main concern of the board when I was hired here to get the facility com- pleted, and we were fortu- nate to be able to pull it off. I'm happy to see (several) years later, we're opening up the doors." Hocker noted that many Film stival Aug. 20-21, 2010 Questions?

He said staff has been accepting of the transition into the new school and new configura- tion. Students, Hocker said, seem to be optimistic and happy about attending the new facility in the fall. The facility isn't quite 100 percent finished, but it's close. Crews still have until the end of the month before officially transferring the building to the district and there is still some work to be done, Hocker said. A few exterior details and other minor things may still be left incomplete at the start of the 2010-11 school year, but they won't affect aca- demics and should be fin- ished early in the school year, he said. The district is planning to hold staff in- service in the building for two weeks before students arrive on Aug. 25. The district plans to have the football field in Cowley ready for practice and games at the begin- ning of the 2010-11 school year, but if the field isn't ready for action, the team could use the field in Byron to start the season, Hocker said. The track is still un- der construction and is ex- pected to be complete in September, he said.

It's go- ing to be great, we just have to get it finished." The 6-12 design isn't a first for the SFC, Simmons said, it's a design that the agency has been using in- creasingly with like-sized districts around the state. Burlington Schools, under the direction of BHCSD1, have had a 6-12-grade fa- cility for a while and the model has been successful, Simmons said. While there have been some concerns raised about younger and older students sharing the same space, Simmons mentioned some advantages of the combined building such as opportuni- ties for eighth-graders to attend upper level math "We're looking forward to classes and the reduction of providing a great educa- teacher travel time. Simmons and Hock- er agreed that Groathouse Construction and Plan One Architects were great to work with throughout the project. Hocker encourages stu- tional experience for stu- dents in a nice, new, mod- ern structure."
