Walls are being framed and the second level is taking shape. Utilities are being installed. Athletic equipment, lighting and paving is being installed. Roofing is complete in one section of the project.
Furniture sit-ins with staff and students took place this spring at Tech with selections being demonstrated and tried out at the high school. Final selections and quantities will be finalized in the fall and the furniture order will be placed in winter 2018.
A pilot (model) classroom will be constructed at Tech this fall complete with the same furniture and technology that will be installed at the new high school. This pilot classroom will be open for staff and students to utilize in advance of the opening of the new school.
