#Build2170! One new K-12 building, two buildings (K-6 and 7-12), and three buildings were options that were discussed extensively. Where to build one school including a location halfway between Motley and Staples, Motley-Staples Middle School, Staples-Motley High School, Staples-Motley Elementary were all considered. Issues including land and utility cost, land available at current sites, renovation costs, existing fields and student safety were analyzed before making the decision to utilize the current Staples-Motley Elementary building.
