     The new Andrew Jackson Arts Focus Center will open Fall 2019, despite delays caused by the rainy weather and by a redesign of the parking and entrances.

     “We’re excited by all the ways the arts focus center will help the middle and high schools improve their programs and extracurriculars,” superintendent Jonathan Phipps said. “We really appreciate the community’s support and patience through the construction process.”

     The 68,000 sq. ft. center will include

•  a 1,500-seat arts performance facility, including a performance-quality stage area, top-quality acoustics and state-of-the-art sound and projection equipment,

•  furnishings for auditorium or dinner-theater seating,

•  additional competition-size gym space with bleachers to seat 400 for practices and smaller sports events like volleyball, wrestling and middle school basketball and

•  classrooms large enough – and designed for – arts focus programs at the middle and high schools.

     Work on the three new entrances is complete, improving traffic flow during student drop-off/pick-up and giving traffic to the schools room to stack off HWY 521.

     Canopies connecting the arts focus center to the two schools will be installed.

     Doors and door locks have already been replaced and athletic facilities upgraded as part of the improvements made possible by the bond.
