Since I asked the question about whether the glass windows facing the open work area were a distraction, I'd like to clarify the response the teacher gave. His answer was that HE tended to find it distracting when people were working in the open area. He said he couldn't tell if it distracted the students.

Thanks, Jodi. I decided to focus on his answer regarding the students.

These look pretty cool, but I'm not sure what the research says about how, if at all, these improve student outcomes. Looking at the pictures I can't help but think "Open Classroom v.2.0".

The District allocated almost 2MM for the three pilots, about half of this year's money available for facilities. You report the work @ Heights cost almost 1MM. The 750K grant, does that money "free up" 750K for other work in the District or was it added to the 994K at Heights bringing the total cost @ Heights to 1.6MM?
