Columbus Public Schools Looking at ‘Different Options’ for Old Middle School

COLUMBUS, Neb. – The Columbus Public School Board is still undecided on the fate of the old middle school.

Superintendent Troy¬†Loeffelholz says “the district is researching different options” on the building that CPS stopped using after they moved the middle school students into the old high school building last fall.

CPS contracted architectural design company RVW, based in Columbus, to assist in the plan.

Loeffelholz says the district has a wide range of options for the building, from demolishing it, to renovating it for a district office and early childhood center.

They could also use it for “alternative education programming.”

Loeffelholz also says that the board hopes to make a final decision on the building by 2019 at the latest.
