Superintendent speaks to chamber about district projects

August 20, 2009

Basehor-Linwood Superintendent David Howard was the featured speaker Thursday at Basehor Chamber of Commerce meeting.

Howard talked to chamber members about the district's current projects and what parents and students could look forward to during the next year.

One project that is already complete is the addition to Glenwood Ridge Elementary School. Seven new classrooms were added to the building, two of which doubled as storm shelters during severe weather.

Linwood Elementary has some continued construction to its entry way in the front of the building. Howard said the renovations were intended to draw more attention to the elementary school because the attached middle school will close after this year when the new middle school opens.

The new middle school is coming along nicely, Howard said, and the finished product will be quite attractive.

"It's really an outstanding building," Howard said. "And once it opens, I think we'll see more growth in our community."

Basehor-Linwood's new intermediate school will not pale in comparison, as Howard said this school is shaping up to be a beautiful building.
