Elevating All Students: Planning and Design Strategies to Maximize Equity and Opportunity

Two new high schools, two very different communities and one Big Hairy Audacious Goal—to elevate 5,300 high school students toward college and career success. Join us to learn how Granite School District in Salt Lake City, Utah, is planning to create equitable and innovative high schools in two distinct neighborhoods—one an affluent, white collar community and the other a blue collar mining community. You will learn about the visioning strategies and stakeholder engagement processes used to create a shared vision between the communities. We will also examine long life/loose fit principles and kit of parts planning and design strategies that are promoting equity between the schools. And the best part is that we will be sharing these ideas at a critical point in the design process—so come with your big ideas and help us maximize equity and opportunity for all Granite students!

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the equity-based strategies needed to build consensus among stakeholders from multiple communities
  • Develop a kit of parts strategy for building design to maximize equity among multiple educational facilities
  • Translate visioning goals into design guidelines for the client and design team.
  • Implement long life, loose fit building design strategies to create sustainable equity for decades
