* Target Range School is gathering comments and ideas about improving the school building to better serve its students.

In general, would you support improvements to the Target Range School building that improved learning areas and increased students' safety?

Question Title

* Would you support such improvements if they increased property taxes on a $300,000 home by $233 each year, or roughly $19 per month?

Question Title

* Now, some specific questions about potential improvements to Target Range School.

The school's science rooms were built in the 1950s. Would you support upgrades that provide space for STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) labs and robotics programming?

Question Title

* Target Range School was built before it had band and orchestra programs. Currently band and orchestra students crowd into small classrooms not intended for large numbers of kids. Would you support creating larger spaces for these programs?

Question Title

* Target Range School was built before concerns such as intruders and school shootings. Would you support security upgrades that better protect children in the school?

Question Title

* Target Range offers more arts programs than many years ago. The existing art room includes an internal pottery kiln, which raises safety concerns. Would you support an updated, larger art room and space for an outdoor kiln?

Question Title

* Target Range School serves grades K-8. All grades use the same lunchroom, which also doubles as a gym. Would you support creating more gym/cafeteria/multi-purpose space in the school?

Question Title

* Would you support more gym/cafeteria/multi-purpose space if it allowed kids more time to eat and go outside for recess, and also provided a space where kids can be indoors during extreme cold weather or unsafe air due to wildfire smoke?

Question Title

* Target Range doesn’t have an auditorium for music concerts, holiday program and other events.

Would you support more gym/cafeteria/multi-purpose space that also included a performance stage for such activities?

Question Title

* Most of the classrooms in Target Range School were constructed nearly 60 years ago. Kids today learn in a broad range of settings - in groups and in spaces where they can be active, not just sit at a desk.

Would you support creating open areas in the school where kids can learn in more collaborative and dynamic ways?

Question Title

* Comments on indoor learning areas?

Question Title

* The outside of the school also is important to safety and education. Now, we want to ask some questions about the school grounds and parking lot.

Outdoor space could be enhanced for learning activities. Would you support outdoor learning areas for students?

Question Title

* Would you support connecting the neighborhood walking trail and creating a green space for community activities, such as the farmers market, at the current front of the school?

Question Title

* Would you support creating a soccer field, improving the track and adding more accessible-for-all playground equipment to the school's outdoor areas?

Question Title

* Comments on outdoor features?

Question Title

* The school parking lot gets busy during pick-up and drop-off times. It's also busy during school programs and special events. Sometimes people park on neighboring streets. Do you think the school should expand its parking lot so there is more space during busy times?

Question Title

* Would you support moving the school entry to the current back of the building in order to improve safety, improve parking and ease traffic congestion?

Question Title

* Comments on parking and traffic safety?

Question Title

* While overcrowding is not an issue at Target Range School, students and staff say the school's hallways feel narrow and are busy between classes. Would you support improving the flow of students through the school by widening hallway widths?

Question Title

* Comments on school hallways?

Question Title

* Now that you’ve heard a little more detail about ways Target Range School could be improved, we want to know if you would be supportive of these changes.

Would you support such improvements if they increased property taxes on a $300,000 home by $233 each year, or roughly $19 per month?

Question Title

* We also want to know if you would support scaled-back improvements to the school if they resulted in paying somewhat less taxes.

Would you support safety and education improvements to Target Range School if they increased property taxes on a $300,000 home by $145 each year, or roughly $12 per month?

Question Title

* Comments on funding safety and education improvements?

Question Title

* Finally, we’d like to get your opinion regarding the old schoolhouse building on the Target Range School grounds.

The Little White Schoolhouse is currently used for storage. The building doesn’t meet legal safety standards to make it safe for student or community use. Would you support Target Range taxpayers funding improvements to the building that make it safe to use?

Question Title

* Would you be more or less likely to support a funding measure for school improvements if it also included money to restore the Little White Schoolhouse?
