Board reviews facilities planning for new grade spans

Updated September 17, 2014

At a September 9 work session, school board members reviewed the facilities and financing plans for work to be done at the district’s three comprehensive high schools as part of the planning for new grade spans that will begin in the 2015-2016 school year.
