The process to plan, finance, design, and build a new school takes approximately 30 months. Based on current growth, Center Grove will need to open the new school for the 2019-2020 school year. The Board approved the project at its November 2016 meeting. No petitions were filed during the remonstrance period, so the project is moving forward without a referendum. Until the new school opens, portable classrooms may be added to elementary schools to increase the number of students each building can accommodate.
