How will this help our fine arts programming? When fine art events would take place in our current gymnasium or at Beresford Elementary School, we would not schedule practices and events up to the date the space is needed for a performance. This would allow for play practices to take place at Beresford Elementary School -rehearsals that could be free of bouncing basketballs and other events taking place in the background. During concert seasons, we would eliminate the need for multiple set-ups for similar types of events. We have made sound and lighting upgrades to our current gymnasiums. We plan to utilize these spaces for fine arts performances, prom, dances, and concerts.
Do you need to build classrooms first? To address the potential need for classroom space, we have studied our growth rate, our potential building capacity, and created a model to determine when adding classroom space becomes a priority. Based on our growth rate, current building capacities, and our predictor model, we do not need to add classrooms to the Beresford School District. Enrollment data will be continuously reviewed to ensure that we have the classroom space we need.
