Fairfield (Ohio) City School District is preparing to begin construction of three school facilities that will bring about a reconfiguration of the schools.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the district is expected to begin site work later this month for the three schools: a new elementary--Fairfield's sixth; a building to replace the aging Central Elementary; and a replacement freshman school.
The district says that when the $80 million project is completed and the new facilities open in 2017, Fairfield will move fifth-graders from the intermediate school to elementary schools and move sixth-graders from the intermediate school to middle school.
Fairfield would convert the intermediate school to a second middle school, and grades six through eight would attend middle school.
The freshman facility would be built on the same campus as the existing high school.
