M.L. King Academy
Latest Bond 2020 Updates

The M.L. King Academy Project Advisory Team, or PAT, comprised of members of the school community, met on May 10, 2021 for an introduction to the Bond 2020 project. Representatives from the architecture firm, Moody Nolan, were on hand to get to know the PAT members and to kick off the conversation around what the Edison project will look like when it is complete. The project will focus on a complete campus replacement.

It will be a lengthy process, starting with the design of the project that will take about a year. 

Parents on the PAT expressed their happiness about the project: "We are in shock. A new school? We are happy to see something get started."
