Recommend Approval of Renaming the Atrium Complex

Staff Present

‚ÄčKathryn Block, Chief Communications Officer

Main Points

CMS Communications Services conducted a CMS Insider employee survey and an executive staff poll to identify new names for the Atrium complex. Below are the names receiving the highest number of votes:

  • 1. Three-way tie between the CMS Education Center, CMS Education Campus and the CMS Education Complex
  • 2. CMS Academic Support Complex
  • 3. Tie between the CMS Education Plaza and the CMS Atrium Education Complex  

The Atrium site consolidates onto a single campus CMS support services that were previously decentralized across Oakhurst, Starmount, Walton Plaza, Spaugh, Villa Heights and other locations. It provides stable, suitable office space for many CMS employees who faithfully support the work of this district. The consolidation also facilitated the conversion of Oakhurst and Starmount to new schools: Oakhurst K-5 STEAM magnet and Starmount Elementary.
