FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - An elementary school at Fort Campbell will shut down at the end of the 2014-15 school year to clear the property for a new school facility on the same spot.

The Department of Defense Education Activity will replace Marshall Elementary School with a new 647-student capacity building for the 2016-17 academic year.

Kentucky District Superintendent Frank Calvano said in a statement that the construction will allow for the completion of supporting roads and parking areas around the 26.86 acre site.

The nearly 500 students from Marshall Elementary will be moved to the five remaining elementary schools. Some redistricting of students and changed bus routes will result from the changes. Parents and sponsors will be provided with school assignments and detailed school bus routes and schedules in the spring of 2015.
