At Charles Olbon, the current media center is part of a wing constructed in 2000. The carpeting is worn out and being replaced by VCT tile. The room is being redesigned with new furniture to better accommodate today's learning environment. The space will be more mobile and fluid for more uses such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) maker spaces. Current desktop computers will be replaced by laptop carts for kindergarten and first graders. Second graders next year will each have their own laptops as part of the district’s completion of the one-to-one initiative for grades 2 to 8.

At Memorial School, the cafeteria and kitchen will have air conditioning installed. Also, a movable partition will be installed that will create a new classroom space to help with overcrowding.
