LSR7 Builds Future

One year after 82.2% of voters approved LSR7’s $224 million no tax rate increase bond issue, the investments are taking shape.

The bond projects include renovations and new construction for Lee’s Summit High School and Mason Elementary, a new fourth middle school, renovations across the three existing middle schools, high school activity improvements, a second early education center and additional safety and security upgrades.

Check out progress on three of these projects. Visit LSR7.org/bond for more information.

Lee’s Summit High School

Overview:
Scheduled to finish in 2023, the project includes renovations to instructional and public spaces and 60,000 square feet of new construction.

Among the plans are demolishing nearly 70-year-old classrooms, creating a new southern façade, adding a new, centralized media center, building an outdoor “greenway” with learning spaces, adding a new central corridor, installing energy-efficient mechanical and electrical systems and building new industrial technology labs.

Spring Update:
Renovation progress included demolition for Phase 1 and setting metal frames and studs. New construction work included site clearing, mass excavation and underground plumbing.

 East Trails Middle School (Middle School #4)

Scheduled to open for the 2022-23 school year when sixth grade transitions to middle school, the new 180,000 square-foot school at 1001 SE Bailey Road will serve 1,200 students. Its future-ready design encourages collaboration and learning flexibility.
