In Session: Spring 2021

In Your Own Words

This issue, we’re excited to present an interview with the administration team of Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES as they reflect back on the past school year. LaBella has been privileged to be a partner with BOCES 2 for many years and, following this interview, we are more motivated than ever to help their team accomplish their goals. Quite simply, there is nothing more inspiring to us than hearing educators talk about their commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes for their students.

The best way for us to deliver pedagogy-centered design solutions is to engage with, and listen to, educators. It’s why we’ve been excited to be a place where retired superintendents can bring their knowledge and continue to impact instruction through the built environment.

The details of pandemic response, from event tents to ventilation and filtration, are things you can rely on your consulting partners to help you navigate. Helpful synopses of these topics are included here. We’re looking forward to more discussion of your students, your passion, and how your facilities help you achieve those goals. Let us know what’s inspiring you this summer. We welcome your comments and input at insession@labellapc.com.

School’s In Session

It’s easy to rest on the expertise acquired in over 30 years of design for K-12.  We’ve completed over $800 million in Capital Projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two.

However, we believe experience alone isn’t enough to add real value to our clients. Just as our industry and business has evolved, so has education.  The science of learning has advanced, and so too must our classrooms.

In Session is an awareness that for us, school is always in session. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.  We spend time researching the questions and issues facing our clients and share what we learn here with you.
