About the Project

Since 1937, Danville School has been at the center of our town, educating our children, supporting our families, and bringing our community together. The building has undergone several renovations and additions over the years, and the most recent construction project was more than 30 years ago. In 2019, our supervisory union hired the architecture firm, TruexCullins, to assess the needs and status of the school due to space issues. Like many older schools, they found systems running beyond their useful life and crowded spaces that no longer support students and staff in ways we now know have an impact on learning and the health and well-being of children. Based on these findings, TruexCullins presented three building proposals for our community to consider as we discuss how to address these issues and meet the needs of students in our town.

Building Advisory Group

The Danville School Building Advisory Group was formed in August 2022 to bring community members together to discuss the school's building proposals, gather feedback from the community, and provide a recommendation to the Danville School Board. All meetings are open to the public and held at the school library.
