Larger shared spaces such as the commons and gymnasium can be rented by community groups for use after school hours. For safety purposes, the new school’s design allows for some separation between classrooms and community areas.
The new Truman will sit on the same parcel of land but be located to the south end of the property. To improve traffic flow, buses will pick up and drop off students along NE 44th Street. Parent pickup and dropoff, as well as an expanded parking lot, will be available off 42nd Avenue.
Construction is slated to begin in January 2019, with a projected opening in fall 2020.
