Wichita Schools begin moving its admin offices to old Southeast High

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. The Wichita School District began the process Monday morning, moving its administrative offices from downtown to the old Southeast High School.

The temperatures on Monday did not make it an ideal day to begin a big move, but that was the reality for the moving crews.

The district decided years ago it would move its administrative offices from the multi-story downtown building on Water, to the old Southeast High School on Lincoln and Edgemoor.

Everything will eventually be loaded into moving trucks, driven across town and unloaded into the new building.

In addition to all of the moving that needs to be done, there's also a lot of construction work that needs to finish, both on the inside and on the outside.

The old school has been a construction site for months as crews have worked to convert the classrooms into offices.

We're about halfway through the summer, and according to one person helping move, it could take upwards of eight weeks. If that ends up being the case, the move will not be complete until after school starts.

As for the current district offices, a developer bought the building in 2014 and will convert them into apartments.
