Global Learning Academy Pensacola, 8-11-2011
The almost completed Global Learning Academy of Pensacola is set for opening for the 2011-2012 school year.
Today, the school was opened up to the school board, the 1/2 cent watchdog committee, selected staff, and interested members of the public for a tour.
The facility is coming along, but several areas of the school are still under construction.
The facilities planning department again stated that this 127,000 SF facility will be completed on-time and for about $130 per SF--which is reasonable given the current economy.
