Thank you, LPS voters, for supporting the $298M bond program! With the construction of a brand new elementary school on the Franklin campus to serve the Highland, Franklin, and Twain elementary communities, the Highland builidng will be available for conversion to an early childhood education (ECE) center.
During a Board of Education meeting on May 27, 2021, the Board approved administration's recommendations to return to having one robust, early childhood education center for the district by combining The Village North Preschool and The Village at Highland Preschool. A centrally located, dedicated early childhood education center will allow LPS to keep and enhance the quality Village preschool model and robust programs our youngest learners deserve, while also meeting stringent federal and state requirements for both indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Construction on the district's early childhood education center is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2023.
