New plan for Sioux City's Bryant Elementary School
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The years are winding down for Sioux City's oldest elementary schools.
Bryant Elementary will be replaced by the year 2020. School leaders Monday night voted to move forward with a plan to tear down the existing school and build a brand new three-story building in its place.
Over the last several years, the district has grappled with finding a suitable site to build a new school.
They have studied 14 different options.
The one they've decided on takes six neighboring homes.
Built in 1890, leaders say it's time to bring students and staff into a new century.
"I know for a fact that Wyoming wasn't a state yet, at that time. So, that is a very old school, and I think we all agree that our students deserve better, and our teachers and staff members deserve better resources as well in the 21st century," said Mike Krysl, School Board President.
New construction would start in 2018.
The school would open to students in the fall of 2020.
Bryant students will be split between Lincoln and Crescent Park schools after Bryant is torn down.
