Dr James Lane touring the new  FCCPS high school

Dr. James Lane, second from right, was at the high school on Monday, April 12, for a quick tour of the building. He was joined by Superintendent Noonan, Principal Hills, school board members, and administrators.

Dr. Lane focused on the FCCPS reopening protocols, including the students working in "hub" spaces and the sustainability features in the building's design, from the geothermal heating and cooling to the light tubes from the roof down through the building. 

He was able to see some classrooms, the library, and the vivarium, the room designed for cultivating living things, including lettuce and tilapia. 

Dr. Lane serves as executive officer of the Virginia Department of Education and secretary of the State Board of Education.
