CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - The school district is talking to Cedar Rapids residents about plans to build 13 schools in five years.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/2osOeBO ) that the district held a community input session Tuesday at Arthur Elementary School. Under consideration are larger schools that would replace some current schools and reduce the total number needed by the district to house elementary students. The three options officials are studying could cost the district between $200 million and $260 million.

Officials didn’t say where the 13 schools would be built.

Two more community sessions have been scheduled.
