TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Students in the Tippecanoe School Corporation still have a week of summer vacation left, but administrators are looking to the future.

The TSC is in the final stages of a feasibility study in the Klondike area. Data shows the northwest part of the county is growing the fastest, and the corporation is trying to stay on top of it. 


Plans provided show the current Klondike Elementary would be used for grades K-2, and the Klondike Middle School building would be used for 3-5.

Superintendent Scott Hanback told News 18 the corporation has preliminary drawings for a new middle school. He said the district would then renovate Klondike Elementary and Middle Schools. 

The current Klondike buildings would be turned into two elementary schools. He said one would house kindergarten through 2nd grades, and the other would include 3rd through 5th.

"That allows us to grow with the Klondike community," said Hanback. "That allows us to have facilities that are functional and educationally-adequate that are safe and can really provide that education for the next several decades in the Klondike community."

Hanback said the growth is nothing new. The district has expanded 20-percent over the past 15 years.

"What is happening in the northwest part of the county happened along Veteran's Memorial Parkway 15 years ago or so," said Hanback. 

Hanback said the TSC is also planning feasibility studies soon at some south side schools, noting Mayflower Mill and Mintonye Elementaries are at or near capacity. 

The Klondike plans still have to go before the school board. There is no construction timeline now, but Hanback said he would like to see some headway done this school year.

The first day of classes in the TSC is Tuesday, Aug. 13.
