Ground Breaking for New Elementary School next Monday

Jasper (NNDC) – The Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools will officially break ground on Jasper Elementary School on Monday May 21st at 9:30am at 3799 N Portersville Road. the 111,132 square foot elementary school will be home to approximately 850 students in grades PreK-5 from Fifth Street Elementary and Tenth Street Elementary.  The school design will include enhanced safety features and incorporate learning environments conducive to small group instruction and STEM exploration.

The school corporation accepted a bid for $25,794,235 for construction and equipment costs back  in April. That cost does not include soft costs but falls within the $30,925,000 bond issued to cover the cost of the elementary school as well as any costs associated with the decommissioning of the other two elementary schools.

Attendees and special guests are permitted to park at the Church of the Nazarene on Ackerman Road for the ceremony.
