The Board of Education and Lawrence Township community are pleased to unveil a completely a renovated Amy Beverland Elementary School. Part of a comprehensive Blue Ribbon Facilities Plan that began in 2015, the district has invested over $174M to date on facility renovations. According to Superintendent, Dr. Shawn A. Smith, “These facilities enhancements allow us to provide a first class environment for students that facilitates 21st century learning.”
Originally constructed in 1989 on just under 15 acres, Amy Beverland had never undergone full renovation. With a total investment of $9M, updated spaces include a new portico and entryway, new office spaces, renovated classrooms (including the addition of two new classrooms on the southeast side of the building) and hallways, a new media center named for late principal, Mrs. Susan Jordan, a new kitchen, and a new driveway that is accessible from the north side of the building. Additionally, a new stoplight has been installed at the Fox Road entrance. Infrastructure work includes new HVAC equipment and fiber optic upgrades.
“Amy Beverland has a history of excellence and it is a joy to be able to provide the community with a first-class facility that mirrors that tradition,” shares building principal, Mr. Jered Pennington.
