How to Keep Students Learning During School Renovation
How to Keep Students Learning
So now you know the signs of needing a school upgrade. But how can this be accomplished without disturbing daily operations?
This is where temporary modular classrooms can help. Modular buildings can be delivered to your campus in individual units. They are then set up and ready for occupancy in as little as 30 days from contract approval. And because of their temporary nature they can be easily removed from your campus once your upgrades are finished; and you no longer need the extra classroom space.
Modular classrooms function just like that of regular classrooms and can be customized to meet the needs of the customer. Classrooms and other types of school buildings such as lab rooms, restrooms, cafeterias, medical offices and locker rooms are all possible with modular construction.

According to Spaces 4 Learning, there are certain elements that can make a renovation project both memorable and manageable, including communication and safety.
Keep your students and staff in the loop with all construction plans, so that they are aware of what to expect. Make sure to include how their temporary modular classrooms can benefit them during the process. “Day-to-day communication elevates safety for all concerned. While each campus may communicate differently, the essential key is that communication is well timed, two-way, inclusive and continuous” (Spaces 4 Learning).
Communication tools such as social media can be an excellent way to keep everyone informed up to the minute. Some schools may even implement a blog or community page. This tactic can help to inform the school members on construction progress. “Daily messages can explain that certain pathways or areas around construction will be blocked or off-limits for a period of time”.
Continuing operations and learning can be completely achievable, but safety precautions still need to be set in place.
- Secure construction zones
- Have clear pathways and designated areas for students
- Separate construction from learning areas
- Make sure construction noise is kept to a minimum during school hours
The ultimate goal is to minimize disruptions, while at the same time enhancing student learning with temporary classroom space.
