LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- News 18 got a first look inside Glen Acres Elementary School's new building.
The new building will have better security features and improvements in technology.
It will also give the school much more space to spread out different programs, which will provide more classrooms.
The old building will eventually be torn down and made into a parking lot for the school.
Principal of Glen Acres Megan Hatke was a student at the school when she was younger.
She told News 18 what it's like to see the insititution go through these changes.
"To be part of the whole building process too has been a lot of fun," Hatke said. "So it'll be bittersweet when they tear down this building but exciting to go to the next one."
The project is expected to be complete by the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.
