Knox School Board Discusses Elementary Palmer Wing Project

Knox Community School Superintendent A.J. Gappa

The Knox Community School Board got an update on the progress of the Facility Study Committee on Monday night. Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the committee is gathering figures for the possible project on the Palmer Wing of the elementary school.

“Architect Dana Wanamaker had sent some figures over to the school and to representatives from Umbaugh finance, and we still haven’t talked to the representative from Umbaugh so we are still in that planning stage of how to move forward,” said Gappa. “We will be meeting with our board committee in the near future and getting information back out to the public.”

Gappa says the committee is exploring a number of options for the project.

“Do nothing and let things go as they have been, renovate the old Palmer Wing, or maybe build a new wing to replace the old Palmer Wing. Those are kind of the three options that we’ve presented to the public over the past year. We’re just moving forward with that same procedure,” said Gappa.
