South-Doyle High School (2020 Tipton Station Road)


South-Doyle High School has long struggled to balance its needs with physical restrictions. These restrictions prevented the school from fully realizing the potential of its 1:1 technology and personalized learning initiatives. Two years ago, asbestos was discovered in the space and a two-month abatement process began that closed the library doors. District and school leaders saw an incredible opportunity to think outside the box and create a dynamic space that would become the hub of the school using media services that would motivate and excite students. Thanks to the generous donation of Randy and Jenny Boyd a 21st century library and media center came to life.

Two or more board members may be present.
