Schools will open their doors to students soon while one school is still under construction.
The Farley school is expected to be completed July 1st of 2009 on 33 Rd and Urish Rd.
"Farley Elementary School", named after Washburn Universities' President Dr. Jerry Farley is coming together. The couple who sold the district the land for the building favored the name to recognize Dr. Farley and his wife for their contributions to education.
Farley Elementary is expecting to welcome 450 students in its first year in grades k through 6 and a special education pre-school.
Because of the growth in the area this school will relieve some of the pressures neighboring schools have.
