Here is an architect's rendition of the pro posed new campus-like look for Shaw High School. This view is looking north from Terrace rd. Plans are The price tag on Shaw High School’s campus-like new look, including 10 additional classrooms and a new administrative wing was estimated at $105,790. The Board of Education Monday night authorized the Conrad & Fleischman architectural firm to develop a master plan of the Shaw- and Prospect Elementary School sites. The plan was to include a study of pedestrian and vehicu lar traffic, outdoor recreation facilities, building utilization, overhead connections between the various Shaw High School buildings, better utilization of existing structures and pos sible new construction. The long range plan will he presented to East Cleveland City officials to determine whether traffic and fire safety have been given adequate con sideration. Closed bi September With the Board's action looms the possibility that Shaw ave., from Euclid south to Ter race rd., will he closed to through traffic by September. The portion of the street, how-ever, has net been official ly vacated by the city, even though the Board owns all the homes in this area. For this development, the school has on hand some $350,000 in building funds which was left over from money used to build the Korb Student Center. According to Superintendent Harold Nichols, depending on the availability of additional funds, the new’ look could he completed within three years.

The Board of Education had given serious consideration to this move two years ago. In order to gain an informa tive and impartial opinion of the student capacity of the tw’o school buildings. Dr. M. J. Con rad, Director of Research and Services of the Bureau of Edu cational Research of The Ohio State University, was requested to do a capacity study of Shaw and Kirk Buildings. Dr. Conrad’s study revealed that the maximum pupil capa city of Kirk W’as 1260 and that special facilities for science, physical education and music were inadequate. The addition of three teacher stations would increase enrollment ca pacity to 1400. Enrollment ex ceeded 1400 the past tw’o years. Pupils have been housed by holding class sizes in excess of 30. Seven Schools Larger Only seven junior high schools in Ohio are larger than Kirk in terms of enrollment one in Akron, three in Cincin nati. two in Cleveland and one in Parma.
