Barton Elementary will close for Fall 2012.
Students will be reassigned to the new $21.8 million Mackenzie PreK- 8 School (see photos), which will include a large open media center serving the needs of the school’s middle and elementary students. The building design will focus on student safety and will be environmentally responsible. Bright, sustainable classrooms will line colorful corridors centered around an academic commons area and teacher work centers. The new school is among the 18 new or renovated schools that are part of the $500.5 million DPS Capital Improvement Program.
