PK-5 Elementary Addition & Renovation Project
The Tipp City Exempted Village School District is placing a 5.40 mill ($35.75 million) 27-year bond levy on the May, 7 2019 ballot to renovate LT Ball Intermediate and to build a 94,000 square foot addition to provide new classrooms for all students in grades K-5. The renovations and additions would occur on the existing Hyatt school campus, and Nevin Coppock, the bus garage, and the tennis courts would be demolished and abated to provide new parking and traffic options to address congestion in the area during arrival and dismissal.
The renovated and extended elementary school will be designed for approximately 1250 students and accounts for the growth projections Tipp City Schools are currently anticipated to see over the next decade. It will replace the existing Nevin Coppock School (Grades K-1) and Broadway School (Grades 2-3), and will move the classrooms for grades 4-5 from the original 1974 structure of LT Ball Intermediate into the new classroom addition. The plan requires NO temporary "swing school" space with modular units. A new bus garage and tennis courts will be constructed on the property near Tippecanoe High School near Donn Davis Way.
