The plans for renovations on Twain Elementary are moving forward as planned, officials said at Tuesdays School Board meeting.

Board member Chris Lynch presented the next steps for approval by the board at the meeting and said he is pleased with the pace of development.

The building will be receiving a new gym, music, and art rooms, as well as renovations on the rest of the school, 1355 DeForest Ave.

Lynch said the current layout of the school is “really challenging program-wise” as students must use the gym as a cafeteria and are not provided with adequate music and art spaces.

The facilities hosting art and music will be relocated to be closer together, to provide accommodations from children going from one to the next.

The board unanimously approved step four of the plan, the projected design development update.
Lynch said the next step will be to approve the final construction document.
