The existing 69,635-square-foot school was built in 1964 and has a capacity of about 1,038 students, reports The Sun Gazette.
The project would replace part of the existing building and add new space. The plans call for the school to be expanded by 55,365 square feet, bringing the total to 125,000 square feet.
The first floor of the new addition would provide kindergarten and first-grade classrooms, a gymnasium, three courtyards, and an expanded cafeteria and library. The second level would have classrooms for third through sixth grades plus special education space.
The proposal also calls for construction of three playgrounds on the site’s southern portion--an 11,040-square-foot multipurpose paved playground with a basketball court, a 4,095-square-foot paved play area and a 6,175-square-foot modular playground.
County voters in November 2021 approved a s$360 million school bond that included $38 million for Mosaic Elementary’s expansion and renovation.
The district hopes to start construction on the project in spring or summer 2023 and have it completed by fall 2025.
