Baldwin City Although students at Baldwin Elementary School Primary Center didn’t get to start classes at their new school on time, they will be moving into it earlier than expected.
City building inspectors told Baldwin school district Superintendent Paul Dorathy on Tuesday afternoon that the new BESPC had passed inspection and plans are in the works to start moving in. First day of classes at the new school will be next Tuesday.
“I know the staff, students and parents would like to see us get into that new building,” Dorathy said. “We’ve been pushing to get in, but we had a few last-minute details that we had to make sure were taken care of before we felt OK with putting staff and students into that new building. We were able to resolve some of those issues this afternoon. So at this point, we are going ahead with the plan to start school there Tuesday.”
Weather and other delays had kept construction crews from finishing the $12.9 million building on time. The school district had previously planned to move in after Labor Day.
