Update on Former Central Elementary and Middle School Sites
Now that winter weather has set in, work on the former site of Central Elementary School will wait until spring 2019 when fill will be added, then graded, and grass installed finishing the demolition project and transforming the Central Elementary site into green space. Champion Middle School work will also wait until spring to have the remains of the school stage removed, followed by grading and grass installation.
There are no plans at this time to alter the use of the CMS property except to turn the school site into green space. The Board will continue to host the Champion Athletic Club on this property site.
Once the Central site is converted into green space, seven acres of the ten-acre Central parcel will be turned over to the Champion Township Trustees. Three acres of the property will continue to be owned by the Board to maintain the school bus garage, parking for bus drivers, and driveway access.
