With Bray support, the School District of Eleva-Strum successfully passed two referendum questions in April 2017. The $12,000,000 question allocated funds to create a consolidated K-12 campus, while the $2,100,000 million operating question allowed the district to continue educational programming and building maintenance.
The K-12 unified campus was achieved by constructing a new 48,000 square foot elementary school addition on to the existing, centrally-located middle/high school building. This addition serves 4K-5th grade students, replacing two existing elementary schools currently located at other district sites.
The new elementary wing features shared collaboration spaces, facilitating a variety of exploration and hands-on learning opportunities from small group break-out sessions to multi-class, large group activities. Glass windows and doors create a visual and physical connection between these collaboration spaces and the adjacent classrooms.
