Preliminary designs of new school buildings for USD 257 were unveiled Monday night.

The contrast between old and new is dramatic. A predominantly glass-enclosed cafeteria, for example, is not only an inviting environment for students but also works to bring the public more on board with today?s education.

SJCF Architects, the Wichita firm that helped the district pass a $35 million bond issue, showed board of education members their designs to date.
