SF School District Looks At Elementary School Changes

SF School District Looks At Elementary School Changes
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls School District could close two current elementary schools in the next few years, forcing some students to switch schools.

The district is looking at how to best prepare for future growth while also dealing with older school buildings.

A plan proposed at a school board meeting on Monday would see Longfellow and Jefferson close with Mark Twain Elementary School being torn down to make room for a new building.  Students would then go to a rebuilt Mark Twain Elementary School.

The district says it is cheaper to build new rather than rehab the older, smaller buildings.  The district says this is just one option it will look at when deciding how to best deal with the growth and that nothing will happen with these schools until 2018 or later.  

In addition, the district is also looking at possible options for the Spanish Immersion program.  Those changes could comes as soon as the 2014-2015 school year.

Dates for when action will be taken were clarified.
