Buena Vista was selected to participate in a WCSD learning environment pilot program. This past spring, WCSD set up a commission on elementary education which was responsible for leading the district to redesign simple schools in order to meet the demands of students for the 21st century. This group of lecturers and directors reviewed research on the subject, explored their personal experiences and engaged in a design sprint to create the following statement of intent for the project: "We work to develop learning environments that allow our students to interact, cooperate, be innovative and insightful while encouraging them to think. Developing classroom environments for classrooms in the 21st century is crucial for meeting the needs of current students. To turn our learning areas into flexible furnishings goes far beyond them. Research shows that it has a deep feeling of belonging and intention to pursue a happy, fulfilling life. With the creation of spaces that reflect the broader need for a' linked' climate, we will guarantee that students get what they need at their fingertips.
