CMS to launch construction of northeast Charlotte elementary

Construction can start on a new elementary school in northeast Charlotte after the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board approves a $13.6 million construction contract Tuesday.

The school, near the intersection of Johnston-Oehler and Mallard Creek roads, is expected to open in August 2015. It will relieve crowding at Highland Creek Elementary, which has almost 1,200 students this year.

The 39-classroom school is being built with money approved in the 2007 bond referendum. Ann Doss Helms
