P-20 campus planned by Aurora Public Schools

September 27, 2009

Aurora Public Schools recently broke ground on 100 acres at East Sixth Avenue near E-470 for a P-20 campus, for preschool through the 20th grade, designed to get students prepared and on track for a college degree or a career.

One building will house students in elementary school through eighth grade. A second building will be for high schoolers.

Eventually, a "university satellite" facility will be added, said Rich Patterson, director of campus development for Aurora Public Schools.

Specifics on the campus are still being worked out. The first phase of the project, the P-8 school, will be completed in time for the start of the 2010-2011 school year. The second phase, for high schoolers, will open a year after that. Both projects are being funded by bond money approved by voters.

The "university satellite" has not yet been funded.
