The Northwest Allen County Schools Board is looking at building another elementary school.
Superintendent Chris Himsel made the recommendation last night, saying anticipated and existing enrollment numbers make a strong case.
District enrollment has been steadily growing, gaining about 300 students since 2009 and expected to get close to 4,000 within the next 8 years. The district opened its last new school in the fall of 2009.
The Journal Gazette reports Himsel denied rumors about plans to build a second high school, saying that’s “not the issue right now.”
If the board moves ahead with the plan, voters will be asked to approve a referendum to pay for it next year.
