The Aboite Township homes are in Southwest Allen County Schools, a district that will see at least 1,000 new homes in the next few years, Stacey Fleming, SACS spokeswoman, said Friday.
Planning for the future growth is already underway.
“At the November 16 school board meeting, SACS Board of Trustees approved to hire architectural firm Barton-Coe-Vilamaa to conduct a growth feasibility study for Summit Middle School and two elementary buildings, Deer Ridge and Whispering Meadows,” Fleming wrote in an email Friday.
“Anticipated residential growth along our district’s northern border will provide SACS the opportunity to welcome new families to our community and bring new students to our district’s schools,” Fleming added.
