This third community conversation was immediately preceded by tours of the building. Attendees were able to see some of the most problematic areas identified during the six months of intensive research that Imagine team members conducted. A PDF of the tour posters describing the areas is available below.
Following the tours, consulting architects from Perkins + Will presented a first round of conceptual drawings of possible facilities solutions. The concepts are based on the research and feedback on facilities needs that the Imagine OPRF Work Group has gathered since last September. In addition to about 40 Imagine team members and administrators, approximately 125 community members attended the session and were asked to provide feedback on the concepts.
As you click the links below to review the potential concepts, please note the following:
The drawings divide the building into three primary areas:
Each of these three areas has three different potential concepts.
Each of the concepts stands on its own; i.e., there isn’t an academic core concept that is meant to go with a particular common facilities concept or PE facilities concepts.

Session 2—Feb. 27, 2018
For the past six months, the four Imagine OPRF subgroups have investigated the OPRF facilities, gathered feedback from 1,600+ students and staff members, toured peer facilities, and conducted a wealth of additional research. The goal: determine the high school's facilities needs, with the goal of recommending a facilities master plan to the Board this summer. Roughly 140 attendees, including about 40 Imagine members and administrators, participated in this session, where teams shared their findings. Links below will take you to the presentations.

Approximately 90 participants attended this OPRF High School Community Conversation, including about 30 community members from the Imagine OPRF team. Chairs of the four work group teams (Academics/Student Achievement, Athletics/Extracurriculars, Performing & Fine Arts, and Physical Condition/Safety & Security) introduced their members and updated the group on their research process so far. A representative of Perkins + Will, the consulting architecture firm for Imagine, presented on future-ready learning spaces. Attendees then worked in small groups to provide a list of things they'd like the Imagine group to consider as it conducts research and creates its facilities plan recommendations.
