New PK-2 Building Naming Process Continues ~ Input Needed by Dec. 15th at noon!
In the fall of 2021, the Lake County School District expects to open our new pre-k through second grade building. This building is located just north of the current West Park Elementary site. West Park Elementary was built when the town of Climax incorporated into the Leadville area in 1962-1963 to accommodate the influx of students because Margaret J. Pitts Elementary was at capacity.
The new building will also house The Center Early Childhood Program. The Center opened its doors in 1988 to bring child care, preschool, and family services together.
We have an opportunity to explore if the Leadville community wishes to re-name the new facility. An initial survey was conducted, which identified that a single name for the whole building was preferred.
Keeping the current name West Park Elementary was favored, but the name Lake County Elementary also received considerable support because this name might better represent the whole community that the building serves.
The building naming committee decided to conduct this second survey to gather more data from the community. This survey will close at Noon on December 15th. This data will be used to support a name recommendation to the Lake County Board of Education.
The Lake County Board of Education will make the final naming decision.
Thank you so much for taking the time to offer your input – it is so helpful when making an important decision like this for our community!
