facebook District 202’s newest elementary school will be built on district-owned land adjacent to Ira Jones Middle School on Wallin Drive near downtown Plainfield.

The Board of Education approved the new location at its July 22, 2019 regular meeting. The building will be the district’s 18th full-service elementary building. It will be of similar size and design to the schools built during District 202’s heavy growth period during the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The new school is being built to help create enough space in all the district’s elementary schools to allow for full-day kindergarten for all eligible students. It should also allow for additional space for special education classes and programs districtwide.

District officials expect to break ground later this year. Construction is expected to take two to three years. Attendance boundaries will be determined closer to the school’s opening following a six to eight-month study process.
