A public meeting has been set for Tuesday, June 12 to discuss the elementary school building plans. Joe Leschisin, Cameron High School principal who is heading up the planning, announced the date at Monday night's meeting of the Cameron School Board.
He said that the Elementary Building Design Committee is working hard to leave no stone unturned when looking at all the needs.
"Last time we built a school, we built it to last for 100 years," said board member Gene Phillips. "We want this to be just as good."
Leschisin said that by mid-August, there should be cost projections ready.
"And we definitely want input from the community," he said.
The current plans have classrooms grouped together in pods by grades so collaboration can be accomplished with the teachers.
"And safety is a big issue," said Leschisin. "The areas will have separate doors."
He said that future expansion is worked into the plans and along with safety, playgrounds and traffic flow are big considerations.
Patricia Schroeder, Elementary School principal said that the group is still deciding how many classrooms to put in the building and the committee is looking at having four, 4-year old prekindergarten rooms.
"It's a good idea to look at the future," said Phillips.

Board members had a first reading of the Title I Parent Involvement policies for both the Cameron School District as a whole and the Elementary School.
"These policies are designed to help get the parents involved," said Randal Braun, district administrator. "That always makes a plan more successful. Parent are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education."
Approvals were given to the proposed calendar for next school year. A total of 190 days are scheduled.
The resignations of Ryan Eichman as Middle School football coach, and JoAnn Lystig, All Aboard Preschool teacher were accepted.
Approved for employment were Stacy Rust as Middle School lead secretary, Daniel Krug as Middle School lead custodian, Ken Keef as Middle School night custodian and Katie Hill as a summer school teacher for Grades kindergarten-4.
Awards ceremony at the Middle School is Tuesday, June 4 at 9 a.m.
Summer school runs June 10-21.
High School graduation is Friday at 7 p.m.
