Choosing the Right Furnishings for District Overhaul
School Specialty’s furniture and equipment solutions give students the true modern learning experience in all school environments.
The Clark County School District in Kentucky undertook the massive task of building and overhauling four schools in just three years, they called upon School Specialty’s Projects by Design (PbD) division to furnish these projects. The PbD team implemented modern and flexible Classroom Select furniture to enhance the educational experience for all students. We had utilized Classroom Select furniture for many years and were pleased with its functional, adaptable, and durable designs.
The Classroom Select line inspires productive learning, engages students and prepares them for success. The flexible, versatile classroom furniture fosters collaboration and is adaptable to all learning environments. Classroom Select furniture was included in every classroom across all four Clark County projects, with the new George Rogers Clark High School alone containing over 3,000 student chairs and 2,200 student desks.
The complete overhaul and conversion of the old middle school into the new Conkwright Elementary School required all new furniture and equipment solutions throughout the facility. The existing furniture was outdated and inadequate for the Clark County vision of providing young students with a state-of-the-art educational experience. Fortunately, the PbD team was able to provide Classroom Select furniture offerings for the 21st Century Classroom.
The Classroom Select products installed in Conkwright Elementary are adaptable to every learning situation and environment, and include student desks, chairs, and tables that can be quickly and easily reconfigured. Whether students are learning in large lectures, small group projects or individual learning spaces, the Classroom Select solutions supplied by PbD optimize these environments, and therefore the modern learning experience.
The district continues to call on PbD and School Specialty for additional furniture and equipment solutions as a result of our overriding satisfaction with their work. The Classroom Select furniture implemented throughout the new schools has been met with resounding praise due to its durability, functionality and adaptability to every teaching method and learning environment.
