Plans for new Roswell elementary presented at March 3 meeting


School to open August 2015; will house Esther Jackson students for first year



February 26, 2014
ROSWELL, Ga. – Community members will get their first look at how plans are shaping up for the new elementary school in Roswell during a community meeting on March 3. The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Roswell North Elementary School, 10525 Woodstock Road in Roswell.

The March 3 meeting will cover construction and design information for the West Roswell Area elementary school, to be located at the intersection of Alpharetta Street and Thomas Drive in Roswell. "West Roswell Area" is a working name for the school until a permanent name is selected.

The new elementary school will be sited in an area currently occupied by a shopping center and residences, all of which will be demolished to make room for the new school. The school will initially serve a dual purpose when it opens in August 2015.

For the first year, it will be the temporary home for Esther Jackson Elementary School students while their current school is demolished and replaced on site. Once Esther Jackson Elementary is rebuilt, the West Roswell school site will permanently open to new students in August 2016 after redistricting of students.

During the community meeting, school system representatives will be on hand to discuss special features of the new school, architectural details and other design aspects of the plans. The meetings will not focus on attendance boundaries or redistricting, which will be a separate process beginning the year prior to the school's opening as a permanent site.

The West Roswell Area elementary school is being built through proceeds of the one-cent Special Purpose Local Options Sales Tax (SPLOST) passed by voters in 2012. The total cost for the construction of both the West Roswell Area elementary school site, as well as the re-build of Esther Jackson Elementary is estimated at $40 million.
