More than 1,200 students at two Center Grove elementary schools will spend a year-and-a-half doing assignments and projects and taking tests while construction crews renovate the buildings around them.
Center Grove is finalizing construction plans for additions at Center Grove and North Grove elementary schools. Construction at the two schools should begin in May, after students have left for summer vacation, but will continue after they get back, director of maintenance David Statler said.
Both elementary schools will get new gymnasiums, restrooms, offices and storage space on the perimeters of the buildings. The old gyms will be converted into larger cafeterias, and bus parking will be relocated.
