WCIA/Jefferson welcoming proposals for site use
Westside Community Improvement Association is requesting proposals from programs interested in operating at the Jefferson Site.
Proposals are sought from Charter schools – We have 6 classrooms available for primary occupancy by a charter school and 4 potentially shared classrooms.
We are also seeking proposals from organizations and programs that offer recreation, art, performing arts, cultural enrichment, after school programs, nursery schools, health, nutrition, physical fitness, literacy, and other community resources.
The Jefferson Campus is proposed to house a Charter School in the South Building and by fall of 2014 (if not sooner) all space in the South building will be dedicated to that purpose. We are seeking proposals from Charter Schools that will recruit students from our community and offer free quality education to the children of the Westside, elementary schools preferred.
The North Building will house a Community Recreation and Cultural Enrichment Center. Programs in the North Building are expected to share space in order to maximize the benefit to the community and minimize the cost to operate programs here. We are also proposing the development or renovation of 2 more spaces outside the North Building.
There will also be a public park available for outdoor recreation programs, a neighborhood events center with a stage, and a permitted kitchen. Programs are expected to offer free opportunities to children and families that live within ½ a mile of the Jefferson Project. We welcome proposals from organizations serving all ages.
The proposed timeline for completion of the improvements at the facility is September 2014, but parts of the facility will be ready much sooner.
Please include financials with proposals and mail by October 15th, 2012 to:
