A $20 million construction project at Center Grove High School won’t add classrooms, but officials are finding ways to free up space inside the building.
Officials aren’t expecting to run out of classroom space at the high school anytime soon, but the school district’s enrollment grew by 130 students this year and could grow more in the future. And two departments that are moving out of the building — the Center Grove Police Department and information technology — are moving because they need more room to run their programs.
Right now, the Center Grove Police Department is housed in an old office at the high school, near the west gym, while the school district’s technology department is taking up about three classrooms. But the high school no longer is an ideal spot for either department.
