Land details

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 LEAD Innovation Studio, which is currently 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.
