In May of 2016, Adams Central Public School voters approved a $19.7 million bond issue for a new elementary school to replace the district’s three smaller elementary schools. The new school, built across the road from the junior/senior high school, will house all of the district’s K-6 students.
To serve all 600 students in grades kindergarten through sixth, the school was designed around grade-specific pods. Each pod containing a group of eight classrooms with a central multi-use collaboration space large enough to accommodate all sections of a grade at the same time for team-teaching assignments, and flexible to support small group projects, one-on-one sessions with paraprofessionals, or hands-on experimentation.
