The Muscatine School District has decided the fate of it's oldest elementary school, Jefferson Elementary. The district was working with FEH Associates Inc. of Des Moines to decide on four possible options.

These options included renovations, additions and the demolition and construction of a new building.

Superintendent Bill Decker confirmed they will be building a new building, picking option number three in the proposal.

The new building will be built on the existing school grounds, adjacent to the current building. It will face East 9th Street, allowing for a dedicated drop off area, slower traffic and increased pedestrian safety, according to the proposals.

The construction will also create a large green space with a possible staff parking lot across the street on the properties that the school owns.

Students would still be able to attend class in the old building during construction.

In this plan, the old building would be razed after completion of the new facility.

Decker says they will work with the architect to determine when construction can begin and because the district is debt free, they will pay as they go.
