  • 1. J.C. Magill Elementary School Facilities Plan Lauren Hagey FRIT 7132 - Jones
  • 2. About the School <ul><li>J.C. Magill Elementary School </li></ul><ul><li>Opened August 1996 </li></ul><ul><li>Part of the Gwinnett County Public School system </li></ul><ul><li>Approximately 1450 students in grades K-5 </li></ul><ul><li>Vision: Magill Elementary School will foster a safe, nurturing environment through collaborative relationships and quality instruction to promote life long learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Mission: To empower all students to achieve & demonstrate excellence in academic knowledge, skills & behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>Mascot is the Comets </li></ul>
  • 3. The Media Center Entrance Everybody and Non-Fiction Area
  • 4. The Media Center Reference and Reading Area Reading Area
  • 5. The Media Center Magazines Computer Area
  • 6. The Media Center Everybody Section Picture Shelf Markers
  • 7. The Media Center Circulation Desk Fiction/Non-Fiction Section
  • 8. The Media Center Currently… <ul><li>The furnishings in the media center are upholstered chairs set in a semicircle, which is conductive to conversation or small group reading. </li></ul><ul><li>There are 25 computers - enough for one class to work at a time. The broadcasting area is adequate. The Mimio lessons/whiteboard are very popular. </li></ul><ul><li>Computer availability seems to be a problem. Teachers find it difficult to reserve time when trying to complete a multistep research project. The media specialist is very busy with teaching specials and must depend on the para to carry on many of her media center duties. </li></ul><ul><li>The top shelf in the Everybody section is a little too tall for young elementary students to see or reach the books. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher resource or professional books are in a small room that many teachers said is less than easy to access. </li></ul><ul><li>The media specialist currently recycles newspapers and ink cartridges properly. </li></ul>
  • 9. The Media Center
  • 10. What Students are Saying… <ul><li>From an interview with several students, here are a few of the highlighted statements- </li></ul><ul><li>Good: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Taking AR tests in the media center is faster than waiting for class time.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Signs make it easy to find books.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The books on top of the shelves are great. I usually pick them to read.” </li></ul><ul><li>Bad: </li></ul><ul><li>“ I feel like I can never get to a computer.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I can’t reach the books on the top shelf in the Everybody section.” </li></ul>
  • 11. What Teachers are Saying… <ul><li>From an interview with several teachers, here are a few of the highlighted statements- </li></ul><ul><li>Good: </li></ul><ul><li>“ The circulation desk is set up so that students are independent in checking books in and out easily.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Introduction and instruction to the media center is very helpful. Students understand the rules and respect the media center as part of the classroom.” </li></ul><ul><li>The Mimio and white board lessons are very cool. Students enjoy them and they are helpful in several content areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Bad: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Teacher resources are difficult to get to and to check out.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ It’s difficult to schedule time for students to do research and AR tests.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I find it hard to find time to do whiteboard lessons in the classroom.” </li></ul>
  • 12. The Media Center
  • 13. The New Media Center <ul><li>The Technology Specialist will move her office into the vacant room next to the Media Specialist’s office. Teachers and faculty will be able to consult with the specialists more easily. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher resources are now in a shared room, giving more room and more accessibility. </li></ul><ul><li>A small stool is added for shorter students and the books have been moved down one shelf. </li></ul><ul><li>Another computer has been added away from the instruction computers for more privacy. </li></ul>
  • 14. New Furnishings Oversized floor pillows provide a comfortable solution for students to come to the media center to read for pleasure. GoodDeals.com $229.95 for a set of 4
  • 15. Policies <ul><li>The current policy for scheduling is open. I would keep this policy, but have a sign up sheet for after-school computer usage. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can come in before school to do AR tests, but I would create a sign up sheet for AR during the day so that students could use the computers even when a class is using them. </li></ul><ul><li>One computer will always be available for students not in a class during an instruction time. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers would have a lesson on how to use the Mimio board and would be able to sign up to use it in their own classroom time. This would create a natural collaboration with the Media Specialist. </li></ul>
