That means the replacement school could house three schools the size of Clay Elementary School and still have room left over.
Clay covers 55,412 square feet, and Harmony Leland encompasses 65,127 square feet.
Construction for the new school, which will be located on Factory Shoals Road in Mableton, is scheduled to begin in Spring 2019 and be completed in May 2020.
Harmony Leland Elementary has served students in Cobb for almost 70 years, while Clay Elementary has educated thousands of Cobb students over about 60 years.
When Clay Elementary School’s estimated 380 students walk through the doors of the new school, about 600 Harmony Leland students will join them when the combined replacement school opens in Fall 2020.
