KEMPTVILLE – The local public school board is moving ahead with building an elementary school on County Road 44 to replace Kemptville Public School.
The Upper Canada District School Board put the project out to tender last week and bids will be taken until March 2.
School board chairman Jeff McMillan said they are working with North Grenville to re-tender the project since the scope of the project has changed.
“We’re excited to get this process back on track for our students and families in that area,” McMillan said.
The single-storey school will be 43,836 square feet and have 14 rooms. It will accommodate 438 students.
It will be built about a kilometer north of the County Road 43 intersection and is scheduled to be open sometime during the 2017-18 school year.
Kemptville Public School on Reuben Crescent was built in 1958 and had an addition built in 1978.
