Fairborn district preparing for 2 new elementary school buildings


Details about two new Fairborn elementary school buildings are emerging.

Fairborn Intermediate School, also known as Palmer South Elementary School, is one of the two buildings to be replaced.

The $50-million project stems from the passage of a bond levy last year that will raise funds for the project.

Planning is to continue through fall 2019. Classes are scheduled to begin in fall 2022. The 100,000-square-foot building to replace Palmer will house grades three through five.

The projected cost is more than $21 million, according to school district officials.

The second building to be replaced, the primary school off Dayton Yellow Springs Road, will house pre-K through grade two. That 130,000-square-foot facility is to be two stories and include new technology, larger gym and playground equipment.

Construction is to begin in December 2018, with a projected completion date of fall 2020.

The cost for that part of the project has been estimated at $27 million, according to school district officials.
