Proposal for Black Hawk Elementary

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Black Hawk and Edison Elementary Schools are combining in 2011. Waterloo Community Schools is building a new facility, scheduled to open by the 2011-2012 school year.

The district is considering a proposal to close Black Hawk Elementary a year early to save money. School board members would like the public's input before they make any decisions.

"We want them to understand why, how it's going to work, answer their questions, and give us their feedback," said district representative Sharon Miller.

Waterloo school leaders will also answer questions about the move to a new elementary building. Funding for the new school is coming from the One Cent Option Tax for schools.

There are two meetings scheduled. The first is Monday, February 15th at the Central Middle School auditorium. The second is March 2nd at Edison Elementary. Both meetings start at 7:00PM, and refreshments will be provided.
