Renovation to Wallace Elementary

The current Wallace Elementary (6510 NW 62nd Ave), was one of the first elementary schools in Johnston. Growing enrollments and the need for more classroom space have led to the decision to move Wallace Elementary across the street to the existing Johnston Middle School.

The building itself remains structurally sound, and the district foresees using it for administrative offices and a district-wide programming area. This is a second phase project and will be done once adequate funding is available. The current Administrative Resource Center (ARC), located at 5608 Merle Hay Rd, is not handicap accessible on the second floor. The ARC is also at capacity limits for office space.
