Bettendorf teachers and students finishing move out from Thomas Jefferson

Teachers are finishing up the move out of the old Thomas Jefferson school in Bettendorf.

BETTENDORF, Iowa - Teachers are finishing up the move out of the old Thomas Jefferson school in Bettendorf.

The school served as a temporary home for some students while Mark Twain Elementary is renovated. Other students were at Ross College.

The $16 million renovation of Mark Twain started early in 2019. Students have a new lunchroom and a new gym which officials say is twice the size of the old building.

Classes at the newly renovated building will start on Jan. 6, 2020.
