Planning for the new Lancaster High School is well underway. Since November 11, 2020, Lancaster High School administrators and staff have been meeting with a team of architects and engineers from the architectural firm Schorr Architects. In addition, the construction management firm of Summit Construction and Resource International have been involved in the planning process.
There have been over 40 meetings held to date. LHS teachers representing each department including career and technical education have been involved in 23 of those meetings. These meetings also include plans to relocate the athletic fields.
The first planning stage, where size of spaces are determined, is almost complete. The second phase, where a floor plan will be discussed, is being planned along with the first phase. The building layout is to have a “main street” running through the length of the building. On one side of “main street” are the two story classroom wings with career and technical space in the far end. The other side will include all the common areas like offices, cafeteria, gymnasium, field house, auditorium, band rooms and art rooms.
As we complete phases, I will continue to update the community on our progress. Thank you for all your support.
