Elementary School Info Meeting

District Hosts Information Meeting about New Elementary School
This is the image for the news article titled District Hosts Information Meeting about New Elementary SchoolWe are hosting an information meeting about our new elementary school on Dec. 4 from 5-6:30 p.m. at Chinn Elementary, 7100 N Chatham Ave.

We purchased almost 272 acres of land at 68th Street and Waukomis Drive, on the eastern edge of our district, for $3 million. This purchase is a result of the long-range, enrollment-based facilities plan the Board developed with input from staff, students, parents and community members.

As called for in our long-range plan, our new site will house our next elementary school and a facility for our high-school students. The elementary will open in 2019, and the LEAD Innovation Studio, which is opening this fall in a leased office space, will move to the new high-school facility no sooner than 2020. 

The size of this land and the designs for the high-school facility will allow us to build onto it to make a full high school at this location if we have enough enrollment growth in the future.
