Three major Butler County school construction projects are continuing despite the coronavirus pandemic, but with some delays.
Rosa Parks Elementary (Middletown) will have 13 additional classrooms, but its current learning spaces will also be dramatically remodeled to better accommodate new instructional approaches.
The most expensive project, a $15 million expansion of Talawanda Schools’ Marshall Elementary, is progressing but slightly behind schedule. Talawanda Schools Spokeswoman Holli Morrish, said the new two-story wing at Marshall Elementary has experienced some delays, making an exact move-in date unknown at this point.
Chuck Hall, director of the private, career tech Marshall High School, said grand opening of the school’s new wing has been moved to December. The new space will allow Marshall’s current enrollment of 275 high school students – most from Middletown and elsewhere in Butler County – to expand to 350.
