Starting in 2013, we engaged the community, our students, our staff and our parents to help us develop the long-range facility plan.

In April 2017, the community approved a no-tax-increase bond issue to fund the projects in the plan.

In October 2017, we broke ground on the new middle school.

In December 2017, we started the process of naming the new middle school and the new elementary school.

In January 2018, we started the process of choosing the first principal of the new middle school. We will assign the principal in June 2018 and the assistant principals in November 2018.

In March 2018, we named the principal of Hopewell Elementary, Dr. Melissa Hensley.

In summer 2018, the Board set the criteria for redistricting all of our schools, from the elementary schools through the high schools. 

By December 2018, the Board will make the boundary decisions for all our schools, K-12.

In August 2019, we will open Walden Middle School and Hopewell Elementary.

In November 2019, we will open our own facility for support services.

We will open our own facility for the LEAD Innovation Studio no sooner than August 2020.

Long-range PLAN

We are building our own LEAD Innovation Studio facility, Hopewell Elementary and Walden Middle School to address overcrowding, keep small class sizes and balance resources. Once elementary enrollment increases enough, we expect to build a 12th elementary school. We are also building a support services and transportation center.

This plan (PDF) keeps our current kindergarten-through-fifth-grade configuration and changes all four middle schools to a sixth-through-eighth-grade configuration.
