The Town of Griswold hired Kaestle Boos Associates to review their space needs and complete an existing conditions and feasibility study. In 2007, voters approved the referendum for the additions and renovations of Griswold Middle School and a new Griswold Elementary School.
Griswold Middle School became a grade 5-8 middle school. Features included renovations to the administrative offices, food service area, music suite, gymnasium, and auditorium. The addition includes new classrooms, science labs, computer labs, specialized areas, and storage. Security, technology, code compliance, and mechanical and electrical system upgrades were also completed.
The new Griswold Elementary School houses Pre-K-4 students. Early childhood and elementary classrooms are clustered together respectively with corresponding play and support areas. Computer labs are included as well as access for community use of the gymnasium and multi-purpose areas.
Site renovations were included for both projects including bus and parent drop-off areas, circulation improvements, and parking.
