New Elementary: Funded by Bond 2008, our 29th elementary school is being built in the Lakewood Pines subdivision. Prominent in the school’s design will be natural light and areas that allow students to collaborate with each other on projects, lessons and activities. The school will include a secured visitors’ entry and other safety features. The layout is based on pods, which are classrooms located around a central makerspace for each grade level. Design plans also include stacking lanes to keep traffic from backing up on major streets.
