In the summer of 2011, the LISD commissioned the services of the Collaborative, Inc., a Toledo architectural and engineering firm to design the new school building. In the spring of 2012, the Board of Education approved the design and authorized the letting of bids for construction. Bids were accepted and contracts authorized in June, 2012. In August of 2013, construction began on the new school building. Construction continued through June, 2013, when a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the site.
