Warren County Public Schools hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, May 15 as construction begins on the district’s fifteenth elementary school. The new facility will serve the students and families of the Warren Central feeder system to accommodate continued enrollment growth in that area. The new building will sit on the lot adjacent to Moss Middle School on Russellville Road and will have a similar floor plan to Plano Elementary School, with the exception of being a two-story facility rather than a one-story structure.
“Warren County Public Schools is now Kentucky’s fourth largest school district, and we are pleased to accommodate our growing student population through the construction of a new elementary school,” stated Superintendent Rob Clayton. “Our facilities remain among the most elite in the Commonwealth, and our newest facility will uphold our long-standing tradition of providing students with a state-of-the-art learning environment.”
The new elementary school will keep in line with the district’s Energy Conservation standards and will be net-zero ready. With safety as the top priority, storm-safe materials will be used throughout the building along with several design elements to enhance safety. Discussions on redistricting will take place this fall prior to the school’s August 2018 opening. The Warren County Board of Education will consider naming the facility Jennings Creek Elementary School at its regularly scheduled meeting on May 18, in the Warren Central High School auditorium at 7:00 PM.
