Cleveland Schools Adding 6 Classrooms At Candy's Creek Cherokee Elementary; Renovating Main Office

  • Tuesday, December 5, 2023

The Cleveland City Board of Education has approved a series of strategic infrastructure and facilities plans within the district. Recognizing a 33 percent increase in student enrollment over the past two decades, Cleveland City Schools has approved an expansion plan for Candy's Creek Cherokee Elementary School in addition to a $1.3 million contract for additional renovations in the new administrative office building on Raider Drive.

The renovation project for the administrative office building is scheduled to start in January 2024 with an expected completion in July 2024.

Simultaneously, the Board has allocated $2.9 million for the expansion of Candy's Creek Cherokee Elementary School for six extra classrooms.

Officials said, "This expansion is a critical component of the district's comprehensive approach to meeting the increasing demand for quality education, given the sustained growth in student enrollment."

The anticipated timeline for this expansion project is from June 2024 to January 2025.

Officials said, "The administrative office renovations and elementary school expansion align seamlessly with the broader vision outlined in the Cleveland City Schools' future facilities plan.

"Looking ahead, the Cleveland City Board of Education remains proactive and committed to addressing these growing numbers. Plans are already underway, exploring the possibility of a new intermediate school and an expansion at the high school to accommodate the evolving needs of the student population."
