|Learning Continues During Construction and Renovations
As the construction and renovation work continues on the Segment 3, most students will continue to attend classes in their existing schools while their new ones are being built. Others will temporarily attend a school in a different building. The plan strives to keep students close to their home schools and is constantly being updated to make the best use of space while minimizing student disruption.
The Africentric K-12 Early College project calls for a new 140,000+ sq. ft. building to house up to 1,000 students (460 elementary, 230 middle, and 310 high school level students) to be built on the existing site with a budget of $32.7 million budget. Demolition of the current building is scheduled to begin January 2012.
This $17.7 million project consolidates Alum Crest High School and Clearbrook Middle School into one facility for 250 special needs children. The new building will be located on the former Scioto Trail ES site: 2951 S High St. 43207. Accordingly, students will remain at their respective buildings during construction. The project is scheduled for completion by fall 2013.
For the 2010-2011 school year, students will continue to take classes at their respective buildings. This project calls for the consolidation of the Columbus Spanish Immersion K-8 Academy and the Ecole Kenwood French Immersion K-8 school onto a single campus, once the renovation of the former Indianola MS building at 420 E. 19th Avenue is completed.
The Starling Middle School project calls for the consolidation of Dana ES, as well as a new building to house 600 students in grades PK-8 to be built on a new site with a budget of $16.6 million. The new building will be directly across the street from the current Starling MS building. The project is scheduled for completion by December 2012. The historic building will be retained as future swing space. For the 2010-2011 school year, students will continue to take classes at their respective buildings.
