Anyone attending the Dublin City School District school board meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13, at Dublin Jerome High School, 8300 Hyland-Croy Road, will have an opportunity to see designs for the two new proposed elementary schools.

School board members will see draft layouts of exterior and interior designs at the meeting, said Jeff Stark, the district's chief operating officer.

One elementary school would be on Bright Road and the other would be off Ravenhill Parkway in Jerome Village, and each would cost an estimated $23,435,387, according to district estimates.

Glacier Ridge Elementary School is being used as a model for the two schools because it was the newest and most popular design, Stark said.

If the district's latest funding request – a combination $195 million bond issue, a 2-mill permanent-improvements levy and a 5.9-mill operating levy – is approved in November, the district would want to break ground on the buildings in March, Stark said, with the goal of completing the buildings by August 2020.

As of now, the district is completing preconstruction work for the schools, Stark said. If the levy should fail, that work could be saved until funding is available, he said.
