On Tuesday, June 5, 2012, City Schools broke ground for a new building for Waverly Elementary/Middle School. The groundbreaking is the culmination of many years of community advocacy and partnership on behalf of Waverly’s students, to make sure they have the school building they need—and deserve.
The new Waverly school also marks a milestone for City Schools. It is the district’s first brand new building since 1998, and it represents the kind of school building the district is working hard to provide for all of its 85,000 students. The new Waverly school will not only have a modern and sound infrastructure, but it also has been designed to support excellent teaching and learning. The term for this is “educationally adequate,” meaning that the building has what it takes for the school to deliver a high-quality instructional program that meets the needs of its students.
Through its 21st-Century Buildings for Our Kids project, City Schools is striving to provide educationally adequate buildings for all students.
