Board Approves Oakdale Design

The Westside Board of Education on April 11 approved the DLR Group’s design of the new Oakdale Elementary. The design hearkens to Oakdale’s past — the oldest part of the existing building dates to 1927 — while offering modern touches such as flex spaces in hallways and a separate gym and cafeteria. Construction is slated to begin this summer, with students and staff moving into the new building in January 2018. See the design here.
