12-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, May 25, 1967 School Board Gets 5 Plans For Study Members of the board of education of the Algona Community School District t;ot their first good look at drawings of the proposed new high school building here during a regular meeting here Monday night. Showing the drawings (and there were five schematic sketches presented) was Cliff Prall of Emer. -Prall and Associates, Des Moire':-s architect firm. He told the iward the dra-.vings represented nothing of a proposal on his part - but l.oped they would give the board (and department heads the fc . .day) some ideas so his firm could go ahead with the planning. All five drawings seemed to •have the necessar\ classrooms and facilities for ever;.thinr else needed in a modern school. Main differences seemed to be location of various departments. All had the nev. school facing either north or west — and located due north from the present football field. Some had the basketball facilities near the rest of the outdoor athletic plant, others on an opposite corner. Prall said he favored a one- story design - and board members indicated they leaned the same way. It seems costs are about the same either way, one or two story, however, less land is used up in building a portion of such a structure 2-story than if It all lies on the ground. Speaking of land, the board probably will investigate the.pos- sibility of acquisition of some nearby - in case the new school becomes over-crowded some day. Board members pointed out likes and dislikes during the discussion - and one point raised was the possibility of bolter utilization of land already owned by the district. Only 264 permanent parking spaces are provided in the schematic plan — probably many less than are needed, what witli the number of students and faculty members who drive to school each da>. It is a problem at the present high school building and could be at the new building, too. Mr. I'rdi was asked aUxit seating lor basketball games and he said plans will call for about 2,300 seats, with the theater (auditorium) to hold 46C. It is expected the nev/ building will have about 98,000 square fe'-t inside it when completed. It will lie some time before final plans are ready for study. Mr. Prall remained in Algona Tuesday for a conference- with Supt. O. ' . Laing and school department heads and will Ix; back for more meetings in a few days - then will meet in a few wtfks with the board again. The problem of finding six more classrooms for the 1967- G8 school year was aired again and it was learned the board is studying several possibilities including changes at a couple of Die present schools to make room for a total of three classrooms, with a/i uptown building possibly available on a 12-month lease for two years, plus cost of remodeling the structure for use as space for students. Playground area nearby could possibly be leased for use, too. Total cost of the building and playground lease, plus remodeling, is not available at present. The problem will be studied further. Five teachers were offered contracts by the board. They are Mrs. DeEtta Twedt and Lillian Boell, second grade; Mrs. Etlial Daman, kindergarten; Richard Przychodzin, social studies; and Marcia Miller, English and dramatics. No date was set for the next regular meeting of the board. Promenaders Party The Algona Promenaders Square Dance Club will have a dance Saturday evening, May 27 at the K.
