By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Before construction begins in a few months, families are getting their first look at where their children will be getting their education.

"The design as it stands right now will hold up to 750 students as it stands now. As it stands right now, it will be a two story structure, similar to the Plano Elementary design," said superintendent Rob Clayton.

Warren County Public Schools released the plans for the their new unnamed elementary school Monday evening.

The new school will feature a gym, what's called a cafetorium, and more than a dozen classrooms, bringing in students from as many as three current schools.

"It will entail Lost River Elementary, Warren Elementary, and perhaps some of Natcher Elementary as well," said Clayton.

The new facility going in next to Moss Middle School will also focus on energy efficiency, using a geothermal heating system.

"This district takes a lot of pride in state of the art facilities, that are also energy efficient, very practical facilities," added Clayton. "We're excited to see where the design phase takes us."

As the design committee continues to fine tune the plans for the best learning experience, they're also focused on making the school a large part of the community.

"There will be ball fields our community can utilize outside the normal school day."

Construction is set to begin in the Spring, with the actual completion of the project expected to happen in time for the 2018-2019 school year.
