The Strongville schools will host the first of two public meetings on plans to build a new middle school at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10, in the media center at Strongsville High School.
Architects will present preliminary plans for the new school, which will be built on the site of the existing Center Middle School and will house all of the district's sixth, seventh and eighth graders.
A second meeting is set for Jan. 24.
Business Manager Mark Donnelly said school officials have been touring other new schools in the area to get ideas for designing Strongsville's.
The district is also forming a committee to look into what type of technology the new middle school, the high school and elementary schools should have.
"We're not teaching kids to use technology, but using technology to teach students," Donnelly said.
Voters agreed to pay for the projects by approving Issue 116 at the polls in November.
