LIBERTY - An official from the state Department of Education talked Tuesday night about construction of a new elementary school on the west side of Casey County.
Tim Lucas went over the proposed amended draft of the district facilities plan that the local school board submitted to the state. The district is preparing the architect/engineer cost and has already approved the amendment for a new school to consolidate Phillips, Phelps and Douglas elementaries.
The Casey County School Facilities Committee was on hand for the hearing, but there were no public comments made at the meeting nor were any written statements received prior to the hearing.
Lucas will submit a report later for consideration by the local Board of Education. The final proposal is scheduled to be submitted to the state school board at its April meeting.
