BioScience High School Planning
The Superintendent and the Board of the District directed the educational leadership to create special focus smaller school campuses to meet specific needs. This allowed the curriculum coordinator for science and her staff, to meet regularly for several months, to “re-think” a science curriculum and learning model for the District’s science program. A series of meetings were held with the key district staff to start developing new and different educational strategies and define unique learning space requirements. Included were a series of labs that were modeled after the adjacent Genomics Laboratory facilities, but to be modifiable as science changes.
Paul Winslow, FAIA, was the architect of record and led the programming process with all stakeholders to discuss and define a new educational program that would prepare the students for a Science or Engineering career. He also led the design process, and oversaw the construction administration while working at Orcutt/Winslow.
