In September 2008, Central Intermediate School, located on a riverbank, flooded and was condemned by the Regional Office of Education.

GreenAssociates assisted the District with immediate temporary classroom space and coordinated the conversion of a shuttered Wal-Mart store into an interim school which was opened in the fall of 2009. In February 2010, the citizens of Ottawa passed a referendum to rebuild Central School.  GreenAssociates continued to work with the Administration and Community in designing the replacement building.

The new school educates 5th and 6th graders in a 2-story 20-classroom wing that includes computer labs, special education lab and classrooms. A library/media center and instructional technology lab support the learning spaces while fine arts are housed in a dedicated art room.  Band and chorus rooms, with practice spaces, support the performing arts. A 2-station gym has bleacher seating for 600, while the cafetorium and stage will accommodate over 650.
