Small group discussions
Forum attendees were asked to answer one of the following questions:
With the realities of the Mohawk School, what are your hopes and dreams for the future school for your children?

If you do not have children who attend Mohawk, what are the most important components for a plan to address school buildings for the next generation?

Group 1
Technology for 21st Century schools
Green and sustainable buildings
Multi-purpose spaces for students
Teachers need storage and lounge big enough to accommodate full staff
Separate spaces for gym and lunch
Performing arts and art/music areas

Group 2
Bigger Playgrounds
More Music/art rooms
Bigger bathrooms for staff and students
More security cameras around the building
Carpeting throughout the school

Group 3
Betterment of schools overall
Larger classrooms
Upgraded facilities that are conducive to learning -- do not put band in a closet
Room for CARE program and fine arts
Playground equipment – appropriate sized equipment for all size/age students
Safety – gyms, traffic flow
Need safer gym floors, not concrete
