The final MAPS for Kids community meeting for Independence Charter Middle School will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 12th. The meeting will take place in the school’s cafeteria, 3232 NW 65th Street and will cover the final design presentation for the school.

During the meeting, parents, teachers, students, neighbors, community members and school administrators can provide input and share their ideas for the school’s upcoming renovations.

The school, established in 2000, will receive over $3.3 million in facility improvements from MAPS for Kids funding. The school’s new classroom addition, along with core facility expansion, will be designed to accommodate 400 sixth through eighth grade students.

Funding for the nearly $700 million MAPS for Kids program comes from two voter-approved sources: a seven-year penny sales tax which ended on Dec. 31, 2008 and an Oklahoma City Public Schools bond issue. Once completed, every student in the Oklahoma City Public Schools district will attend a new or fully renovated school.

Those needing a sign language interpreter, language interpreter or disability assistance can call 297-2578 at least 48 hours before the meeting.

The meeting is being coordinated by Bockus-Payne Associates Architects and the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools (OCMAPS) Trust Project Office. For more information, contact the OCMAPS Trust Project Office at 297-3461 or visit www.okc.gov/ocmaps.
