What has been discussed for the Career Technology and Media Technology classes?
PTISD Coordinator for Career and Technology explained to the Citizens Advisory Committee and School Board that program enrollment has grown at Pine Tree High School and adapting the program to the current space has revealed a number of issues. Suggestions presented are best described as a gut and remodel that would provide optimal teaching layout, power, data that is better integrated for the classroom, and the need for an additional instructional space.
What is included in the remodel of the existing Home Economics Classroom?
As part of the district’s ongoing desire to remain competitive in its course offerings, the concept of a culinary arts program is under consideration. The program would offer instruction in commercial food preparation, food handling and business aspects of the restaurant industry. The physical accommodations would include a full-service commercial kitchen. The scope of work would include a gut and remodel of the existing spaces which were built in 1968.
Which aspects of the High School Theatre are under consideration?
The scope of the work for the theater includes lighting renovations, sound equipment renovations, ADA upgrades and an interior finishing. 

Lighting Renovations:

Sound Equipment Renovations:
