Temporarily, the new address for Lake High School will be 2249 Tracy Rd, Northwood, O.
The Lake Board of Education has accepted an offer to use the Owens Community College Center for Development and Training building on Tracy Road as the district’s high school for the 2010-11 school year.
Members of the Owens and Lake administrations announced the agreement last week at the 53,000-square-foot building.
More than 430 Lake High School students – grades nine through 12 - were left without a school by the June 5 tornado that swept through the Lemoyne Road campus.
The center includes 10 classrooms, three computer laboratories, 34 offices, two reception areas, and 12 learning laboratories.
Owens President Larry McDougle said the building’s classrooms and labs are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
“We look forward to welcoming Lake High School and their staff and students to the campus community this coming August,” McDougle said, adding Owens will be relocating academic courses housed in the center to other campus locations.
Jim Witt, Lake superintendent, said the center gives Lake administrators and board “the opportunity to keep all of our students and staff together, which was our number one priority. Change is always difficult, but we are confident that with the continued support of our caring staff, students, parents and community members, Lake High School will continue to be successful in and out of the classroom.”
The graduation ceremony for Lake’s senior class was held at the Owens Student Health and Activities Center after the field house at the Lake campus was destroyed.
