Community Survey for Poquoson Middle School Modernization Project
PCPS and the architects are interested in hearing from you while we are engaged in the design process for the modernization of Poquoson Middle School. As part of the modernization project the school will undergo a renovation to address the needs of an aging facility. Additionally, the creation of new spaces might be included if the $17 million budget allows. It is important that we get a sense of the community’s priorities as we make important decisions about what we might be able to do beyond the renovation of the school’s infrastructure. The survey will close on Monday, June 24 at 5:00 p.m. To access the survey, click on this link: https://survey.k12insight.com/r/QEBsm3
