This part of the project will move the long jump, shot put/discus areas, the existing practice field south of the visitor bleachers over to the practice field east of the High School. Also needed will be a complete regrade of this field. The base bid of the project will be the building of the High School only. All of the athletic components of this project including gymnasiums, locker rooms, equipment needs will be as add alternates. Timeline now shows that bidding will be sent out in November with opening of bids in December and breaking ground in the March of 23. Timeline shows opening school in August of 24.
