Room in school budget: 4 of them

About 130 new students enrolled at Center Grove schools this year, the most growth the school district has had in five years, and now one elementary is getting new classrooms to prepare for future growth.

The school district will spend more than $1 million to add four classrooms to Center Grove Elementary School, which should be enough room for about 100 more students. The new classrooms are part of a larger construction project that includes moving the elementary school’s gymnasium to the exterior of the building and creating a larger lunch room.

School officials had considered adding more classrooms when they started planning the project but weren’t sure they would have enough money and moving the gymnasiums and renovating the cafeterias at Center Grove Elementary and North Grove Elementary schools were the top priorities.
