Why install these single-occupancy bathrooms?
The new bathroom design concept was created in partnership with the SPPS Facilities Department, a local design consultant and Johnson students through five focus group sessions. These bathrooms will replace the dated plumbing system and increase the amount of toilets by at least six. All bathrooms in the building will be changed over to the single-occupancy model which will be more inclusive for all people.
- The new single-occupancy bathrooms will be easily accessible, brighter, cleaner, safer (easier to monitor), and more secure.
- The new single-occupancy bathrooms will be easier/friendlier for families to use during community events (siblings taking younger siblings to the bathroom).
- Johnson will be the first school in the district to move to a single-occupancy bathroom model, but this may be replicated throughout the district and nation-wide.
