Denver Public Schools: George Washington HS, Denver East HS, JFK HS - Bundle 15
The proposed services for Bundle 15 were to renovate MI-S rooms for 3 different Denver Public high schools. The MI-S rooms serve special needs students in a way to help facilitate learning life skills and include a residential style kitchen, washer /dryer, communal dining area, and shelving for the practicing of stocking materials. In addition to the teaching program elements, a full toilet and bathing room was added to include a sink and toilet, adult changing table, and ADA shower. While each project had its own requirements. AFA took the opportunity to create equity between the various schools as well as develop best practices for DPS to standardize in future MI-S renovations. Innovative ideas included providing induction heat ranges to reduce burn risk, making the ovens at an accessible height, and locating garbage disposal switches in cabinets to reduce reach distances. This project was comprised of work based on the 2016 bond funds and general funds to renovate classroom spaces.
