The district said C.H. Campbell and Hilltop elementary schools along with Canfield Middle School need to be replaced. The district said the land also has enough space for a high school in the future if needed. 

In exchange, the city would take control of the district’s 100-year-old Canfield Village Middle School, parking lot and transportation garage. Under the agreement, the district would also pitch in $1 million toward the city’s plans for the facility — whether it be demolition or renovation, reports Mahoning Matters

To acquire funds to build the school, the district's voters must pass a $107 million bond request in May. 

If the bonds are approved in May, construction could be complete by fall 2025.
