Perin Learning Commons

In January 2015,  a first-rate, 21st Century facility was introduced to the Madeira community. Perin Learning Commons - formerly Perin Media Center - was planned as part of a needed HVAC replacement, and financed through the Board of Education’s long term permanent improvement strategy. An aging HVAC system was replaced with an energy efficient geothermal solution that will pay itself back in 8-10 years

Perin Learning Commons features:

• High efficiency geothermal technology that heats and cools the learning center and nearby guidance wing
• Four skylights that maximize daylight harvesting into the interior of the room
• Four collaborative group rooms with flat screen displays
• White boards
• Outlets, outlets, and more outlets for flexible grouping opportunities and device charging
• A smartboard presentation wall
• LED high efficiency lighting
• Room for 20 + hard-wired computers
• Increased wireless capacity
• Security cameras
• New furnishings and more!

In the fall of 2015, a courtyard was completed by community volunteers just outside Perin Learning Commons.
