NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Napoleon school district is one step closer to building a brand new elementary school after purchasing land needed for it.

The new school will be built off Westmooreland Avenue near the current high school in Napoleon, and where the new junior high addition will be built.

It’s all part of a restructuring plan in the district, which Superintendent Dr. Stephen Fogo says will not only save on operation costs, but also provide new opportunities for students.

“It gives us a district campus feel, so they’re right across the street from each other,” Dr. Fogo said. “One of the things we’re hoping that our kids in the high school choose to do during a study hall is walk right across the street and work with our little pumpkins at the elementary school. Then they can get back in time for their next class.”

The district purchased the land for $787,000. Construction is expected to begin in March.
