Short-Term Solutions for Growth

Modular Classrooms Provide Space for Students

To address growth, the district’s long-range plans call for the construction of a new elementary school, two new middle/high schools and several district-wide facilities, including an athletics complex, transportation maintenance facility, and an addition to Zach Elementary. 

As a short-term solution to address growth, PSD has installed modular classrooms at various schools to ensure all students are served appropriately. Additional modular classrooms may be added on an as-needed basis.

One modular unit is equivalent to two classrooms that each serve up to 50 students. How each school uses their modular units varies depending on their needs. One school may use it as a regular classroom while another may use it as a space for smaller groups of students.
