Middle and high schools detailed in facility report
(Publisher’s Note: This is the second of a series listing details on each NRMS school site’s needs, according to the report indicated.)

Earlier this month, the Nash-Rocky Mount Schools (NRMS) board began its review of the long-range facility needs report, as the first step in creating the NRMS capital improvement plan. The nearly 300-page report is the conclusion of the work of Smith Sinnett Architecture (SSA), NRMS maintenance department, and Brady Trane.

To determine each NRMS site’s needs, SSA compared them to the NC Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) minimum facility standards and used NRMS local requirements.

The report breaks each of the NRMS system’s 27 school sites down in detail, and includes the Early College High School, W. L. Greene, bus garage, central office, teacher resource center, child nutrition, and Oak Level maintenance buildings.

The following is a list of details from the middle and high school buildings section of the report, which spans over 45 pages.
