School Construction

ribbon cutting


With the dedication of the new Performing Arts & Physical Education Wing at Lakewood High School on August 20, 2017, the District's Facilities Master Plan, adopted by the Board of Education in 2003, is nearly complete. We are just waiting on the completion of the new LHS gym and community fitness center in November 2017. The new academic wing at Lakewood High opened on Jan. 3, 2017. Once the gym and fitness center are open, our District will have successfully completed rebuilding or renovating the high school, two middle schools and seven elementary schools!   This is all thanks to the generosity of our community, who overwhelmingly passed three bond issues and permanent improvement levies. The high school project was part of the third and final phase of the master plan, as was the rebuilding of Grant, Lincoln and Roosevelt Elementary Schools, which opened in August 2016.

What is the current status for the final phase of construction?

Our community on Nov. 5, 2013, passed a 3.75 mill bond issue and permanent improvement levy that will now allow the district to receive $50 million in matching funds from the State of Ohio for the $100 million project. As of September 2016, Grant, Lincoln and Roosevelt have been completed and are now open. At Lakewood High, the academic wing opened in January 2017, the cafeteria  opened in April 2017, the  performing arts wing in August August 2017 and the gymnasium and weight room will open in November 2017.
