South Side Elementary

About the project

The South Side Elementary project is a $11.1 million expansion and renovation that will meet the capacity needs of our student population and eliminate portable classrooms. 

What's happening now?

  • Spring-Summer 2018 - The project is in the design phase, which means the project management team is working with District and school staff to envision what the building updates will look like. A community info night was held April 3 and the project management team is reviewing suggestions as the design continues to evolve. Design will continue until the end of 2018.  

  • Fall 2018 - Community info night was held Tuesday, August 28, 5:30 - 7 p.m. to review the latest design plans. Design will continue until the end of 2018. Utility relocation will begin the last week of November. Community members will begin to see work happening on the outside of the building. Two new portable classrooms will be brought to the parking lot between South Side and the Mellon Building mid-December. This will allow us to remove the existing portable classroom for utility work and construction of a new service drive.

  • December 2018 - March 2019 - Utility relocation will occur to make way for the new school addition.

  • Spring 2019 - A groundbreaking event will be held (date to be determined). Construction on the new addition will begin.
