Master Facilities Plan Phase 1 - Middle School Construction
Construction Update (February 2020)
At Worthingway, foundations are nearing completion for the two-story classroom wing. Masonry foundation walls are scheduled to start the first week of February and underground plumbing will follow. Over at Perry/Phoenix, the clearing and site demolition has been the focus in recent weeks, as well as excavation of the new retention pond and excavation of the new parking area. New sanitary structures are scheduled to arrive on-site in early February. Design Development Documents are still being completed and approved for the McCord and KMS construction.
As part of the district's Master Facilities Plan, a community-driven task force recommended the expansion of middle school buildings and a change in grade configuration to create 6th - 8th grade middle schools. It was also decided to move one elementary school from the TWHS feeder pattern to WKHS to balance enrollment in those buildings. Voters in the Worthington City School District approved a bond issue in November 2018 which will yield $89 million to ensure that we have the capacity in all of our schools to keep up with our district’s student growth. Half of the Issue 9 funds will be used to rebuild Perry and Worthingway middle schools, and to renovate Kilbourne and McCord middle schools for all 6th-grade through 8th-grade students.
