Growth Throughout the Lebanon Community

Growth+Throughout+the+Lebanon+Community

You may have heard some news about the new additions within the Lebanon School Corporation. This includes a new Central building, adding onto the other three elementary schools, adding onto the Lebanon Middle School, and creating a brand new transportation building. 

“We are growing slowly but surely,” said Dr. Milleman, LCSC Superintendent.

The Lebanon Middle School renovations will begin in Spring of 2025. This project is expected to continue over a 3 year course.”Kids in fourth grade will be in construction zones for the following years,” said Superintendent Dr. Milleman. The plan is to arrange the Middle School in a way to make it more functional for students and staff. The layout shows a new arrangement of the media center, front office, cafeteria, fine arts rooms, new transportation lanes, and more.

“It was built in 1975, it’s not totally functional anymore,” said Dr. Milleman.

The ongoing construction at the elementary schools is moving along as planned. With this, Dr. Milleman receives weekly updates for each of the four schools. The main goal for these changes is to accommodate the growth of Lebanon by adding more classrooms. A new STEM lab will also be added to the schools for the upcoming years. One of the largest changes within the elementary school renovations is the new location of Central Elementary School. The new school will be located on John Bart Road and is expected to open within the next few years. 

“We want to make the schools easier to access and give them a bigger footprint,” said Dr. Milleman.

Last but not least, a new transportation building will be added to the Lebanon School Community. This addition will be in use for the 2025 school year. This will be a huge upgrade from the old transportation building which only fit 16 buses. With the new renovations, the future building will hold up to 40 buses. Another benefit of the building is better accessibility for the staff. Overall, this building will be a great addition to the Lebanon community. 

“This will all take time but surely worth it,” said Dr Milleman.
