Isle of Hope School to be Demolished Under ESPLOST II

Posted: Updated:

The end of the school year will be here before you know it, and some students will be saying "good bye" to the school they've come to know.

Under the second round of "ESPLOST" or the Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax -- Isle of Hope is set to be demolished.

The Savannah-Chatham school district held a special meeting for parents to get the facts.

You as the voter, passed this second round of ESPLOST, and tonight we learned exactly what is happening with that money.

Isle of Hope is just one of nine schools that will be re-built in this second phase. The school received top priority this time, after not enough funds were available during ESPLOST I.

Heard, Hess, and Hodge are just three of the nine schools that will transformed.

Those working on the project say five years and a whopping 300-million dollars is worth it to give students an environment to help them maximize their potential.

The last day of school at Isle of Hope will be June 7th.

On August 12th, students will begin school at Pulaski while the school is under construction.

Bus stops have not been assigned, but we're told the bell time will not change.

Students can expect to be in their brand new Isle of Hope building in 2015.  This is just one of many meetings the district will hold for parents. If you have questions or comments, and would like to reach the team leading up these school projects, visit the district website at http://internet.savannah.chatham.k12.ga.us/default.aspx or contact Mr. Sylvester Formey at 912-236-1766.
