The Centennial Middle project will reconfigure the library to create collaborative spaces, instructional spaces, quiet study spaces, flexible meeting spaces, green screen video production room, and a nuclear zone as a focal point for student interaction and collaboration. The project aligns with three of BVSD's six Innovation Guiding Principles: Learning is a Social Process, Learning Fosters a Culture of Curiosity and Risk Taking, Mastery of Learning is Demonstrated in Multiple Ways.
During the first school year the new space was used, educators were asked to monitor and track growth towards the outcomes identified in their project plan and present the findings in a digital story. The story was framed by the question, "How is innovation shifting the story of learning at our school?"
