The Centennial Center - Performing Arts Center

The Centennial Center -Performing Arts Center

The Centennial Center, a project approved in the 2014 bond issue, will be a multi-purpose facility that provides a space for: a professional development center, a community center, a history center, an administrative center, and a facility to serve activities of the board of education.    

 The 2020 Bond proposes that The Centennial Center also house a performing arts center with a presentation space in the design of a theatre-in-the-round. This presentation space will accommodate Putnam City performing arts events, speakers, and other district or community events to showcase students through the fine arts.

Maintenance

In addition, the proposal calls for funds to repair and replace heating, air-conditioning, paving, flooring, roofing, and fencing as needed.

Proposition #2 Transportation

This items calls for funds to be made available for purchase of new regular and special education buses to replace buses manufactured in the early 2000s.  Each day over 8,000 students ride school buses to Putnam City schools, and another 400 to 500 students travel to various activities across the city and state.  Why are new buses needed?  There are many reasons.

·         New buses are safer.

·         New buses are lighter and more fuel efficient.

·         New buses produce a lower level of emissions.

·         New buses have increased driver visibility in the front of the bus.

·         New buses have LED lights which are much brighter than the old incandescent bulbs.

·         New buses have remote control side view mirrors that allow the driver to adjust them from their seat.

·         New buses have increased number of camera to improve safety.

·         New buses have air conditioning and reflective white roofs that lower the temperature inside the bus.

·         New buses have acoustic ceiling panels to lower noise levels on the bus.
