Council Rock Primary Expansion

Brighton Central School District

► Council Rock Primary Expansion

Brighton Central School District's district-wide Facilities Improvement Project was its first major capital project in over 10 years. A driving component was the District's desire to launch a full-day kindergarten program at Council Rock Primary, its only K-2 school. The work at Council Rock became a project-within-a project, transforming the school into a flexible 21st Century Learning Environment to provide additional capacity for grades 1 and 2. With a new addition containing 12 learning areas, the District now had enough space to realize full-day kindergarten for the first time.

Project Highlights:

  • 21st Century Learning Environment
  • Addition containing 12 learning areas
  • Full-Day Kindergarten
  • Secure single point of entry and main office addition
  • Nurse’s suite addition
