Steele Elementary School Community Presentation

Dear Harrisburg School District Parents, Staff, and Community Members,

We are excited to move forward with the renovation of Steele Elementary School, which is set to open in the 2024-25 school year!

The renovation of Steele School will provide more space for the District’s elementary students, as well as expand the potential for early learning opportunities for the children of Harrisburg.

The Steele Elementary School’s design is complete and will shortly be released for public bid. Construction will take place over the next 18 months. Plans include:

  • A complete renovation of the existing school
  • New whiteboards and visual instruction boards
  • Updated technology
  • A modern heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system for indoor air quality
  • New windows and doors will bring more natural light into educational spaces
  • Safe school design procedures focused on security
  • New parking lots
  • New playgrounds and play equipment, along with sidewalks and fencing for security

The school will house grades K – 5 and will have 3 classrooms per grade, along with a dedicated small group instruction room, art, music, and special education classrooms. The design also includes an addition that will house space for 4 new classrooms and a dedicated cafeteria and kitchen. 

We look forward to sharing more information and updates as the project progresses.


Eric Turman,
