Provide performance event space for large groups to the whole school community.  Provide the community with space to be able to use school facilities for larger performances and/or students use community facilities for larger performances. In addition to formal spaces for events such as auditoriums and amphitheaters provide space for events with portable stages and some seating (e.g. commons, flexible Media Resources and Multi-purpose rooms).

The Ed Specs serve to illustrate concepts that will inform the master plans based on OUSD's aspirations to the audience of future architects who will implement them as well as for OUSD stakeholders to understand the reasoning behind modernizations.

Performance Space

To what extent is space for performing arts supported?  Is it in alignment with the programs planned at the District and campus level?


Is there space suitable for vocal group practice? Is there dedicated space with acoustics that simulate a real theater? At high schools, is there a soundproofed instrumental music room?

Community Partners

Locate spaces for performances and presentations to make them easily accessible for community events and mentoring by community and industry partners during school hours after they come through the Welcome Center.
