The money would allow the school to demolish its 1914 building, its 1938 building and part of its 1961 buildings, and replace them with a new building addition. An existing cafeteria would also be renovated into two classrooms, according to information provided by the school.

The new construction would include 20 modern classrooms, a media center, a shop classroom, dedicated music, art and science classrooms and a gymnasium.

The issue will go before voters on Aug. 9, and should voters approve the project, construction could begin as soon as June 2023.

It is estimated that those living in a residential home with an estimated market value of $100,000 would see an increase of $232 in property taxes starting in 2023 to pay for the project, and those with a $200,000 home would see an increase of $583 per year.
