Hardin County Schools’ Board of Education took the first step Thursday evening in determining what Cecilia Valley Elementary School will look like.

The board approved a schematic design — the initial attempt to show members the school’s plan and appearance.

The Kentucky De­part­­ment of Education requires a schematic design to be approved by the board for any construction or renovation projects.

The two-story school is designed for 600 students and will contain 24 standard classrooms. The project is designed by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects.

“We’ve separated the buses with car traffic,” said Kenny Stanfield, principle architect for Sherman Carter Barn­hart. “We’ve also got a turnaround for parent drop-off and we’ll be fine-tuning this.

“We want to work with your committee to develop all of the components of the building,” he continued. “The schematic design kind of lets us identify the basic building and then we’ll start looking at all of those individual parts.”

In December, the board will approve more construction documents for the new school, which will be built on Ky. 86 in Cecilia. Bid­ding for the school is expected after the first of the year, Stanfield said, once documents have been approved.

“That way we can get a contractor ready to start when the weather turns in early spring,” he said.

With the presented timeline, the new school will open in August 2017.

Great Job Jennifer Cash and team!

They're "rolling out" the football field at Boyd County High School. Here's hoping that the Lions and all of Kentucky high school sports can have a safe and fun 2020 season.
