In the spring of 2014, the district began a project to add four classrooms and associated spaces at each elementary school in order to reduce the district's reliance on portable classrooms. The new spaces at Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin were built first, and were ready for students in January, 2015. Construction on the additions at Churchill and Forest Glen were completed in August, 2015. Phase III began in the fall of 2015 which will add four additional classrooms at Churchill and eliminate the need for the 4 remaining portable classrooms. Watch here for monthly updates from construction management firm Frederick Quinn, and for photos of the work along the way.
