JCPS to decide if new elementary school will be built to serve Norton Commons

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new school could be coming to a growing area of Jefferson County.

The JCPS Board will vote tonight on whether to build a new elementary school at Norton Commons.

The developer donated the land several years ago, and the school district has until next year to use the property.

Board Member Debbie Wesslund says the elementary schools in the area are already full. "Well, our capacity analysis shows that this part of town is growing in population and enrollment. Other schools that have been built along that corridor have filled up fast. The cluster of schools where this one will reside is close to its capacity."

The cost for the Norton Commons school is estimated at $15 million. It would serve 650 students.
