The District 51 School Board has given their stamp of approval to a new elementary school in Glade Park.

During Tuesday night's school board meeting, board members voted in favor of a resolution to create the privately funded school. Under the resolution, the district would spend $20,000 rent out a temporary buliding on a plot of land near the Glade Park store.

Back in November, the school board gave the group asking for the school a set of timelines and requirements they would have to meet in order for a school to be built. They say after their last meeting with the group, all requirements have been met and the funding to construct the school appears to be in place.

Officials say the temporary building will serve as a K-2 school for the 2009-2010 school year. They expect about 15 to 20 students to attend.

A permanent school will be built on land near the Glade Park Fire Department being donated to the district. Officials say now that a resolution has been passed, they can begin to work out a lease agreement with the donors. They say the school will eventually grow to a full K-5 elementary school.
