New $28M elementary school to be built in west Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A new $28 million elementary school is being built in west Louisville, the first in the area in two decades. Jefferson County Public Schools officials broke ground at the site of the new elementary school this week. The unnamed facility will be connected to the West Louisville YMCA on Broadway and will serve up to 650 students. Superintendent Marty Pollio says the new school is long overdue. The project will feature energy efficiency measures, including geothermal heating and cooling and energy efficient windows.
