School Board, architect talk building options

What does a 21st century classroom look like? School districts across Minnesota are evolving. Is Glencoe-Silver Lake next on the list?
The School Board met for a work session with architect Paul Youngquist on Tuesday night, Dec. 16, to discuss these questions, as well as the future of Helen Baker School.
Youngquist gave a long list of examples of schools he had remodeled or built for surrounding Minnesota districts, explaining the trends that were showing great results with those students.  
“What kinds of tools do teachers need in their classrooms?” Youngquist asked. “What are teachers trying to do with kids in a given week?”
Throughout his research in those other districts, teachers were asked what kinds of classroom features would benefit their students the most — and they had plenty of answers.
