The Hardin County Schools Board of Education approved a floor plan drawing Thursday evening for the new G.C. Burkhead Elementary School building during a meeting at the central office.

The schematic, presented by Murphy Graves Architects, calls for a one-story building that will encompass nearly 84,000 square feet. The new school will be at 1323 St. John Road in Elizabethtown.

With the board’s assent, the floor plan goes to the Kentucky Department of Education for approval.

The board also is considering starting earth work for the new school in September and will vote on that plan July 16 at the next regular meeting.
