School Buildings In Clark County Get New Look Your Kids Will Love
You and your kids will soon find out if you love the new look of the future Las Vegas valley school buildings. Clark County School District (CCSD) officials are considering two new designs for future projects.
Elementary and Middle School Buildings’ New Look
Templates for new, or renovated, elementary and middle school buildings in the Las Vegas valley are now in the review process. According to an article by Hillary Davis on LasVegasSun.com, the most recent elementary school design is over ten years old. By the same token, the middle school template is almost twenty years old.
Any new school building construction will use one of the two new designs. However, replacement school projects will also use the new templates.
New School Buildings Planned For 2026
Firstly, CCSD plans show new elementary school buildings will be constructed in 2026. Additionally, replacement projects are planned for next year. Mountain View Elementary School on the east side of the valley was built in 1954. Red Rock Elementary School in the west was constructed in 1955. As you might expect, they’re showing their age, and they’re set to be replaced in 2024, per Davis’s article.
Furthermore, three middle school buildings are on the replacement schedule for the following year. In 2025, expect a new construction project at Brinley Middle School in the northern part of the valley. On the west side, Garside Middle School will get a new look. A replacement building is also on the schedule for Woodbury on the east side of Las Vegas.
Designs For Two New School Building Layouts Considered
Two new designs are under consideration by CCSD officials, per the LasVegasSun.com article. “One upcoming elementary plan wraps a two-story building around a central courtyard. The other is a two-building design with single-story wings around a central two-story wing.”
These elementary school building templates are each based on enrollments of between 600-700 students. Adjustments are in the works for middle school student enrollments numbering between 1,050-1,500 kids.
New Templates Updated For Today’s School Environment
Moreover, CCSD school building templates under consideration are set to accommodate “the teaching and learning styles of the times,” per Davis’s article.
