Voters approved the 33 million bond last May.  It will allow the district to build a new elementary school and refurbish some other schools.

 

The new elementary school will be called Barnes Butte Elementary.

 

School Board member Patti Norris says it will be a great addition to the community.

 

"It is scheduled about 700 students.  A two story building, a full size building, library and classrooms arranged in a pod configuration.  There will be four or five classrooms that will face a shared area and create an area for specialized interaction with kids in different grades."

 

Groundbreaking on the  new elementary school was Monday and will be finished by the fall of 2015.

 

It will replace two existing elementary schools.
