Elementary additions begin to take shape


The pace of change at three elementary school additions increased in November
and December. Steel installation at the three schools, a major milestone in the
construction process, is complete. Construction on exterior walls will begin this
winter.

As part of the 2019 Capital Projects Levy, voters approved eight new classrooms
at Rose Hill Elementary and Benjamin Franklin Elementary, and four new
classrooms at Mark Twain Elementary. The additions are scheduled to open in fall
2021.

A four-classroom addition at Rachel Carson Elementary is in the design phase and
is scheduled to open in fall 2022.
