Shelby City Schools announced exciting news earlier this week.
Site work has started on the new PreK-8 school building, which is being constructed on a ten acre site behind the Middle School.
The building was designed by Garmann Miller Architects of Minster, Ohio. The firm has been hired by school districts in Liberty Center, New Bremen, Dublin, Greenville, and other Ohio communities to design similar structures.
The firm also designed the new Madison Middle School.
Shelby’s new PreK-8 building will be able to house approximately twice as many students as its 9-12 building. The goal is to be in operation by the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
The design features wings giving separate spaces to children in K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 grades.
Building plans have now been posted on the District website and can also be accessed here:
