BHS Construction Information
In 2016, a series of widely-publicized community engagement sessions included over 230 community members. The end result was a solution to address enrollment growth in grades K-5 and 9-12, and failing infrastructure at Brownsburg High School. Through discussion, polling, and, collaboration, community members made a recommendation to the Brownsburg Board of School Trustees. The Board voted unanimously to move forward with the construction of an additional elementary, Lincoln Elementary, and to make necessary renovations and expansions to Brownsburg High School. The BHS project will widen hallways, add 23% more classroom spaces and expand auditorium seating. Lincoln Elementary will be completed and open for the 2018-2019 school year. The BHS construction will occur in phases to lessen the impact on students. The final phase is set to be completed in the summer of 2020.
Balancing the needs of our students and teachers with the financial impact to the community was a constant theme through the community engagement process. These projects will not increase the current school tax rate for any Brownsburg homeowner. In fact, 40% of homeowners and all businesses will see a decrease in their school tax rate.
