Upcoming Building Project Information

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, & South Central Community,

It's hard to believe it's already May and the end of another school year is approaching! Where does the time go? We've had another very successful school year at SC. There are always bumps in the road, but I'm grateful to be a part of an incredible school community. South Central is a special place, and that's because of our students, staff, and community!

As you may know, South Central's Board of School Trustees, administration, and staff have been working carefully and diligently on a plan for additions, renovations, and improvements to our school building and campus. Those improvements will begin this summer! It's important to note that this project is completely tax neutral, and will NOT change the school corporation's debt service tax rate. So you will NOT see an increase in your taxes because of this project. We are working within the parameters of the school corporation's existing debt structure. The proposed project will be a total bond issuance of $12.15 million but will be broken up into a series of two bond issues. The board of trustees hired Tonn and Blank Construction out of Michigan City to be the construction manager for the project. Elevatus Architecture out of Ft. Wayne is the architect.

Last June, we convened a committee of 14 stakeholders (board members, admin, teachers, and parents) to identify needs and wants for the additions, renovations, and improvements. Through that process, we came to the addition of classrooms to both the elementary and jr-sr high schools, renovations of ALL restrooms in the building, renovating the library/media center, renovating the locker room area, constructing an activity center building, replacing an old chiller, and more. Please visit the new page on our website for more detailed information and pictures. We will also post construction updates as the project advances.

The Board of Trustees and administration will be hosting an informational meeting on Tuesday, May 14th at approximately 5:30pm for anyone that would like to learn more about the project. The regularly scheduled board meeting is at 5:00pm with the informational meeting to follow.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, administration, and staff, I thank you for your continued support of South Central Schools.

Go Satellites!

Ben Anderson, Superintendent
