Proposed future schools

Proposed New High School #3

The District wide high school population will reach the saturation point in the 2014 / 2015 school year, however, due to the time associated with design and construction ofa high school, the earliest that a new facility can be brought on line is the 2015 / 2016 school year (pending funding in the Winter of 2011 or Spring of 2012). Although both schools will have to deal with overcrowding, this situation tends to be more easily handled at the secondary level. The district has been proactive in the approach of the third high school and land has already been acquired. The site is located on the soon to be constructed Southern By-Pass and is situated as frontage property.

Proposed new Middle School

The District wide Middle School enrollment will reach capacity in the 2019 / 2020 school year, however, pressure at Springfield Middle School will be felt much sooner and could pose a potential problem with a "freeze" at that facility in the 2017 / 2018 school year. It is suggested that a new facility be planned and constructed for use beginning in the 2019 / 2020 school year. In order to achieve this goal, a funding source will be needed by 2016. In order to aid in selecting an appropriate location with respect to growth projections, it would be wise to identify and acquire a site in the near future
