Aptakisic-Tripp Elementary District 102 unveiled renderings Monday of plans for a $25 million expansion and renovation of school buildings.

Spurred by population growth in Buffalo Grove, the district is adding classroom space to Aptakisic Junior High School and Meridian Middle School.

 

The school district is converting administration offices and support facilities at the junior high school into classrooms. The project also features an addition for fine arts spaces, including a multipurpose room and art room.

At the middle school, the district is adding space for early education programs as demand has increased.

The district plans to buy an existing building for its administration offices, but no site has been selected.

The project will be funded by $18 million in bonds and reserve funds.

Construction at the junior high school will start this month, and work on the middle school will begin in the winter. The entire project is slated to be finished by the 2018-19 school year.
