      COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT      

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND RESIDENTS 

Community Engagement Booklet Link
Engagement Session Booklet (PDF)

Shortly after the passage of the Bond and Operating Levy in May of 2018, Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools began to engage teachers and students in conversations about the new Lincoln Elementary. The list of "must haves" from the students, combined with input from the teachers soon formed a list of design elements that would be featured in the new Lincoln Elementary.

District administrators and architects from TRIAD Architects also met with residents of the Gahanna-Jefferson community in a series of 3 community meetings, gathering valuable input about site placement, parking, playgrounds, and exterior features.

The booklet above is a collection of information gathered by TRIAD Architects during the engagement sessions with students, staff, and residents of our community.
