Key spaces such as the early learning center, art room, and spe- cial education classrooms are still included. He said additional storage to eliminate the need to use the gym as storage was a priority. Brown said the plans have the same strategy of separating student drop-off from staff parking. He said the library has been moved to create more room for the classrooms and will include shared maker space. The common learn- ing area will be to the right of the library. He said RIDE requested a sepa- rate entrance be added to the new addition portion of the school, which was added as well. Old County Road School For OCRS, located at 200 Old County Road, original plans to have an additional rear entrance were scratched, partially due to site grad- ing and also because there is an existing door in front.

Significant improvements to OCRS include additional space for the library, main office and music rooms. All schools will receive ADA entryways and air treatment improvements.
