The Elementary School will gain new space for classrooms and intervention services with the summer move of the district’s administrative offices.
The Board of Education on Tuesday (Dec. 14) gave the go-ahead for the district to pursue a lease agreement in order to move offices into The Village Green, a commercial office building located in the Village at 4035 W. Central Ave.
Elementary School enrollment has risen steadily in recent years, from 455 K-6 students in 2015 to 521 this year. After Winter Break, Principal Jeremy Bauer and the building's teachers and staff will start a review to determine how to best use the additional space.
The district offices moving are Superintendent, Treasurer, Student Services, Curriculum and Instruction, and Communications. All but Communications are currently housed in the lower level of the library addition, which opened in 1998. In all, nine employees are relocating.
Entry to the new offices for parents, guardians, and other visitors will be in the back of the building, which is where the parking spaces are located. The Village Green building is owned and managed by Hardale Properties, LLC.
