Background

The Milford Board of Education approved a resolution on May 16, 2013 to accept funds from the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission to complete the elementary portion of the district’s master facility plan. The district is building two new elementary schools to replace both Seipelt Elementary and Boyd E. Smith Elementary. The OFCC will fund this project without any new local taxes. The new schools are expected to open in the fall of 2016. Boyd E. Smith will be located at its current site and the new Seipelt will be located on district-owned property off of Route 131 next to the Grey Cliff subdivision.

Both buildings will have the exact same footprint. The academic wings will be two stories with grades K-3 on one floor and grades 4-6 on another floor. A two-story media center with a bright, open feel will be surrounded by the academic classrooms. Each building will have an extended canopy that comes off the main entrance. The interiors of each building will vary in colors and themes. Interior and exterior sketches can be found by clicking on the Architect's presentations on this page. The buildings are projected to open in August of 2016.
