Hartselle City Schools Board members and Hartselle City Council members joined Hartselle City Schools Superintendent, Dr. Dee Dee Jones, and Mayor Randy Garrison at Crestline Elementary School Tuesday to announce plans for the construction of a new Crestline Elementary School. The planning and design phase will begin in the coming weeks with expectations to break ground in the spring of 2022. The opening of the new school is projected for the fall of 2024. Upon completion, the new Crestline Elementary should accommodate 800 kindergarten – fourth-grade students. The current facility, after remodeling, will serve as a centralized Pre-K center.

“While the current Crestline facility has served Hartselle students well over the past 60 years, it is necessary that we look to the future and provide a modern learning environment for our growing student population and community,” said Hartselle Superintendent, Dr. Dee Dee Jones. “We are very appreciative of our City leaders for their support and shared vision for embracing our tradition while investing in excellence.”

“We are thrilled to be working together with the school system to create another state-of-the-art learning facility,” Mayor Randy Garrison said. “We take great pride in ensuring that the long legacy of providing our citizens with the best education system possible continues.”

HCS and city leaders plan to engage with students, parents, educators and the community at large as the planning process begins to solicit input for the new school.
