Manassas City Public Schools to Host Community Meetings on New Baldwin Elementary and Magnet School

Contributed by Manassas City Public Schools

manssas city public schools logoManassas, VA …A new Baldwin Elementary and magnet school is on the horizon for students, and Manassas City Public Schools (MCPS) is seeking input about its development. The school division will host two community meetings to discuss the building projects on the following dates:

Thursday, October 17, 2013

6:00-9:00 p.m.
Baldwin Elementary School
9601 South Main Street, Manassas

and

Thursday, November 7, 2013
6:00-9:00 p.m.
Mayfield Intermediate School
9400 Mayfield Court, Manassas

“Building a new Baldwin was established as a priority during last year’s joint Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) process with the City of Manassas,” said Superintendent of Schools Catherine Magouyrk.  “Having our families and community assist us by providing input regarding what the schools will look like is vital to our success.”

The new Baldwin Elementary (PreK-4) and magnet (3-6) will collectively house 1100 students. The magnet has been identified as a way to alleviate the growth challenges MCPS elementary and intermediate schools are currently experiencing.  The community meetings will also serve as an opporunity for the theme of the magnet school to be determined, based on feedback from the community.

Moseley Architects has been approved to lead the architectural and engineering services for the design of Baldwin and for the relocation of the ball fields that are currently located at the Tudor Lane site. Representatives from Moseley will join school division staff at the community meetings to hear stakeholder comments for consideration.  Dr. Bill DeJong, an education and facility planning advisor, will lead the meetings to assist with the community dialogue. His firm will also design the educational specifications for the architectural drawing phase of construction.

Community members and school division families are encouraged to attend the October 17th and November 7th meetings to provide feedback in the early stages of the project development.
