Permanent home in the works

Demolition and extensive renovations are underway on the former Imani Baptist Church at 1555 Georgetown Rd., which the Fayette County Board of Education voted in December 2017 to purchase as a permanent home for STEAM Academy. The board will receive monthly updates on the progress. The district expects about 600 students from the STEAM Academy and some 80 in the unrelated and 2018-launched Success Academy to move into the building, tentatively in January 2021.
