Garland ISD opened a similar facility a few years ago. I wonder if we'll see a shift from theaters being built within junior and senior high schools for more of these consolidated venues.
Tonight WFAA ran a follow up to a story about subcontractors not paying payroll taxes in an effort to undercut others bidding on projects. Since it's made the news and I took a photo a few weeks ago, I figured I might as well post about it. http://www.wfaa.com/news/investigate...125451023.html

• A general auditorium for speaking engagements
The Professional Development Center provides:
• Six meeting rooms (subdivided by moveable partition walls) that each hold a minimum of 50 participants in a lecture style format

Three adjacent computer “labs,” each with a capacity for 30 users, provides additional training support. A common lobby is shared by both the facilities with a single point of entry access.
