Welcome Center

Community Hub

(Work in progress) The transition from neighborhood to school is equally vital for students and parents alike. As a welcoming gateway, the entry experience supports rituals around day’s beginning and end, gives staff the opportunity to check in with the social and emotional wellbeing of students, and assures parents they are handing their children into a safe, positive environment. Parent involvement in Culver City USD is exceptionally high.  As the same time, there are families with a variety of needs who would benefit greatly from additional support. The Community Hub empowers each campus to “fit out” the space in a way that best supports their community. 

Uses

Welcome Area

The Welcome Area should function both as a warm, inviting place for all visitors of the building as well as a security checkpoint.  

Administration

Administration will support all required administrative responsibilities and functions associated with the administrative space program. These activities include but are not limited to medium and small group private meetings and individual and group administrative work. 

Community Hub

The Community Welcome Center serves as a multi-purpose space to support the needs of the specific community surrounding each campus. This could include social gathering place for large, medium, or small groups of community members, visitors, educators, and/or learners. Or, it could provide individual work space and one-on-one meeting areas for local non-profit and support services. The space should be open and inviting by offering areas with comfortable, informal seating, and access to abundant natural light.
