Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft and the City Council approved plans to move forward with the Collaborative Learning Center, that will be an addition onto Gulf Shores Elementary School.
The center will be Science, Reading, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math focused, or part of the STREAM program.
The center will feature six flexible classrooms, two STREAM labs, break out spaces and outdoor learning areas.
City officials say the new center is being paid for out of the initial 15 million dollars awarded for school improvements when Gulf Shores schools separated from the Baldwin County Public School system last year.
This is just one of the many improvements coming to Gulf Shores City Schools this year.
As we’ve previously reported, the school is also in the process of renovating their current gym and locker rooms, as well as building a brand new auxiliary gym next door to the high school.
Gulf Shores City Schools and Baldwin County Schools are headed back to classrooms Wednesday.
