ABSS held four community forums on Monday, October 21 at Impact Alamance to solicit feedback for the new draft of the Southern High School conceptual drawing. Pinnacle Design presented key features of the design that proposes a newly constructed single-story building that includes additional classrooms, science labs/classrooms, offices, cafeteria space, and parking. This design also increases security and updates walkways to be ADA accessible. Pinnacle Design also led the facilitated discussion and will incorporate recommendations into the next draft.
