BOE meeting previews new Hesse School

Posted: Updated:

The Savannah-Chatham Board of Education hosted an informational meeting on Monday about replacing Hesse K-8 School.

The new facility would have room for more than 1100 students, so it is a big project with a lot of details to iron out.

"Parents were concerned about the schedule. They wanted to know when the construction was starting; they were concerned about safety because the school is being built while the old campus will still be in session. The concern about traffic is always out here. The new plan has a great traffic flow, they will be able to get a lot more parents in and out to get their kids. Overall, people seem enthusiastic and exited about the project," said Julie Wade, BOE Representative, District 1. They hope to finish the school by sometime next year.
