New Administration and Training Facility
Georgetown ISD is evolving their approach to education to emphasize flexibility and choice in the learning environment. A key part to this culture shift is professional development and training for teachers that aligns with a more modern classroom.
The district’s new administration and training facility mirrors environments found at the campus level. The facility includes conference rooms, planning rooms, a design lab, a maker space and a board room. Notably, these spaces feature movable walls, writable surfaces, adaptable furniture and collaboration areas. The facility is designed for teachers to explore learning and test curriculum before it’s implemented.
An elementary school, located in a historic building, is being renovated for the purpose. The building was built in 1923 and served as GISD’s high school, later a junior high and eventually Williams Elementary School. While the exterior is received minor renovations to signage, the interior is designed with modern and industrial finishes.
