Addison Mizner Elementary School will be razed and rebuilt at its current site, School Board member Frank Barbieri said Monday.

The estimated timeline for the opening of the new school is August 2020 “if everything goes as planned,” Barbieri said.

The Palm Beach County School District had been looking at a parcel in 132-acre Sugar Sand Park but faced legal restrictions as well as opposition from the site’s neighbors. Talks with the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District will now focus instead on using ball fields for recreation by Addison Mizner students, Barbieri said.

Neighbors wanted to keep Addison Mizner within walking distance, not a bus ride away, Barbieri said. The school district is looking to add some land around the school at 199 SW 12th Ave., Barbieri said.
