North Kansas City School District broke ground on two new schools on June 21st, 2023. The district officially began building the schools to replace Nashua Elementary and Crestview. With the two current schools being more than 70 years old, the new buildings will provide upgrades that enhance security, as well as adding better amenities! Dan Clemmens said the school disctrict is growing rapidly and needs more classrooms to accomodate more students. "Education has changed over time and the needs of our facilities has changed. And some of them are just wore out," says the North Kansas City Superintendent, "It's just time to get the kids in a new building because we're spending so much in maintenance just trying to keep the buildings open, it's better to get a fresh start." Crestview will be built at 71,425 square feet and Nashua will be slightly smaller at 69,500 square feet. This re-build is budgeted to cost around 71-million-dollars and the schools are set to open their doors for the 2024-25 school year in August 2024.
