Replacement elementary planned for Glasgow (Ky.) district

The new South Green Elementary will be built next to the existing facility.

The Glasgow (Ky.) school board has announced plans to construct a new South Green Elementary School.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports that the building will be constructed next to the existing South Green Elementary.

It will have a capacity of 500 students and will house first through fifth grades.

The district’s plan is to move kindergarten students from Highland Elementary and preschool students from the Glasgow Preschool Academy to the existing South Green Elementary building.

The school board was presented with architectural renderings of the new South Green Elementary at its February meeting by representatives of the architectural firm Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects of Lexington.

The new school will have classrooms organized into pods, centered on “discovery zones,” according to a news release issued by the school district.

The discovery zones will serve as a central space with flexible seating and accessible technology for a variety of learning possibilities.

The existing and new South Green Elementary schools will share the same kitchen facility, but each will have its own cafeteria.

The school district has submitted its building and grounds permit to the Kentucky Department of Education for approval. Once the permit is approved, the school district can then begin advertising for construction bids, Hale said.
