(CENTERVILLE) – The Centennial School Board is working to keep up with population growth around Centerville Elementary.
The board is considering a $7.9 million addition to the school. It would add 12 classrooms, plus two flexible use areas. Enrollment at the school is currently at 95 percent capacity. A consultant told school officials in June there are nearly 900 homes planned for construction nearby.
The project would not need voter approval for financing. School officials say the tax impact would be offset by a levy that’s expiring.
The Minnesota Department of Education approved the project recently. If the school board approves it at their July meeting, construction could begin next spring.
