    • SDAT Site Goals :: Create a beautiful, cohesive campus :: Maximize open space :: Replace as much field as possible, provide easy community access to the fields :: Development should be appropriately scaled to the neighborhood :: Existing streets are highly congested, minimize impact to traffic for surrounding community :: Provide ease of access from school to outdoor space to support Expeditionary Learning curriculum :: Enhance site with park like features if possible
    • Thornton Creek All-Staff Site Goals :: Play areas should be located to avoid distraction to classrooms :: Play and field must be adjacent :: Provide two separate play areas for two communities (New Thornton Creek Building and Decatur building) :: Rose’s playground should be connected to the Thornton Creek playground :: Field could be shared, but staff would like a means to divide for two communities :: Play should be at the heart of the campus (as opposed to fields) :: Vehicles should not be allowed to pass through the site since parents tend to hang- out after drop-off and before pick-up.
