Sugar Grove Elementary Renovation


SGES Renovation 2020


Sugar Grove Elementary School was built in 1996 and has never been renovated. CGCSC works to renovate each building sometime between years 20 - 25. For the 2019-2020 school year, the SGES enrollment was 696 K-5 students and 124 preschool students, with an ideal capacity of 774.

To identify the needs that needed to be addressed at SGES, architect Lancer + Beebe conducted several meetings with all of the areas in the school and refined those requests. This project is divided into two phases and will address the following needs:

  • Improve Safety
    • Multiple added features to enhance safety/security building-wide
      • Addition of security barriers to restrict building circulation
      • Added video surveillance
      • Additional door monitoring
      • Additional one-way security screening
  • Improve Learning Spaces
    • Renovate classrooms to Center Grove’s learning space standards
      • New cabinetry, furniture
      • New paint, carpet, ceilings, lighting
      • Reclaim gym space for LGI 
  • Add Classroom/Group Space
    • Add classrooms for CGCSC's Developmental Preschool program
    • Add a gymnasium and re-purpose the old one as an LGI room
    • Expand the cafeteria into the existing LGI room

The project cost will be no more than $15.9 million. It will be funded without impacting the current tax rate for White River Township.

Work on the first phase of this project is expected to be completed by Summer 2023.
