District revises building plans
- Starting construction of a new Marion C. Seltzer School in summer or fall of 2017, a year ahead of schedule. The school will remain at its West 98th Street location.
- Building a new Lincoln-West High School rather than remodeling the existing building. Work will begin in 2018 on Lincoln-West’s existing West 30th Street site.
- Fully renovating Joseph M. Gallagher School, 6601 Franklin Blvd., with work beginning in 2018. The school had been scheduled for smaller-scale refurbishing.
- Remodeling Newton D. Baker School of the Arts, 3690 W. 159th St., instead of building a new school.
The new Lincoln-West will house two new small schools designed to better meet the needs of students. The schools, which will open this summer, include the Lincoln-West School of Science and Health and the Lincoln-West School of Global Studies. The School of Science and Health will have some classrooms based at the main campus of the MetroHealth System.
The final project from Segment 6, a new Campus International School for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, is under way on the grounds of Cleveland State University. (See photo at top.) CMSD is leasing the site.
Also included are the following PreK-8 schools: Fullerton, H. Barbara Booker, Oliver H. Perry, Sunbeam, Waverly, William Rainey Harper and a new school next to the current site of the Whitney M. Young Leadership Academy.
