NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - Much needed technology and safety improvements are now a reality at the new Green Valley Elementary School.

The school is set to open for its first day on Thursday, July 26.

The project is a result of the New Albany Floyd County's $87 million referendum, which passed in the fall of 2016.

"We had promised our public when we out for this that we would have a modern Green Valley, new technology, new safety measures that will meet current standards. All of these have been incorporated into this facility," said facilities director Bill Wiesheart.
