Educational Environments Is there a way that your school could safely open in the fall at 50% capacity? What about 75% capacity? Are you looking at all of your spaces and options? How could you maximize your dining spaces?

As our school systems continue to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, we know that every district is facing both challenges and opportunities when it comes to reopening. Social distancing, face coverings, and innovative thinking will be common threads, and each school will need to develop its own tailored plan to meet the needs of its students, teachers, staff, and families.

Please join us for a panel discussion exploring design considerations and actionable strategies viewed through the lens of building owners, program experts, review agencies, and architects. These experts can help you visualize creative solutions for using existing facilities to accommodate a variety of social distancing scenarios within your school to inform your plans for safer space use.
