Clark-Shawnee Schools will break ground on its new PK-6 facility at a community celebration at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, at the site of the new school.
"This groundbreaking is a celebration of the exciting future for Clark-Shawnee Schools that our community has created together," said Superintendent Brian Kuhn. "We are looking forward to marking the occasion with all members of the community as we begin the next steps of construction."
The community voted in August 2017 to construct a new PK-6 elementary school and to renovate Shawnee Middle and High School to like-new conditions. The PK-6 school will be built on the southeast corner of Selma and East Possum roads. The project will be funded with a 30 percent contribution from the state.
The groundbreaking will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at 3680 Selma Road in Springfield.
