Crawfordsville Public to Discuss Middle School Project

The Crawfordsville Community School Corporation is looking to rebuild one of its facilities.

The district wants to construct a new Tuttle Middle School.

Superintendent Kathy Steele says the 50-year-old building is deteriorating and is overdue for improvements.

The estimated cost of the project is $35-million.

The district is hoping to put a referendum on the May ballot.

Steele says if it passes, there will be no increased expense for residents because the High School is going off of the tax rate this year.

There are two public forums scheduled to discuss the project.

They will be held Monday and Tuesday 7 p.m. at Crawfordsville High School.
