REACH will have 36,250 more square feet than the current building. The building will provide multiple shared learning spaces as well as support spaces for one-on-one student focus to better meet the needs of learners. REACH, which currently operates in a rental property within a strip mall in O’Fallon, provides adaptive education placement and therapy to students with special needs from kindergarten through 12th grade.

The new early childhood center will have 20 classrooms. This building will offer programming opportunities that are in addition to what the District already provides at Barfield Early Childhood Center and other satellite locations. This added space will allow for five-day-a-week and full-day early childhood options for District families.

REACH and the early childhood center will operate independently of one another but will have access to several shared spaces for convenience and efficiency. Parents as Teachers will also be located in this building.
