Case Study: Granger Elementary
The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has two missions: to improve education for all students and to control costs for the taxpayer. Not surprisingly, these agendas often conflict, especially considering salary demands, technological innovations, rising health care costs, and binding state mandates. In 2007, TASB had to mitigate the conflicting agendas when building elementary schools for its independent school districts.
TASB contracted SHW Group from Dallas to design classrooms that would optimize floor space, increase student learning and create a more enjoyable work experience for teachers. A brilliant solution, which can be seen in 30 classrooms of Kay Granger Elementary School, was the installation of NanaWall’s folding wall systems.
