Warren County supervisors have put their stamp of approval on a $69 million plan to build a new high school in Warren County. The plan includes converting an existing junior high school into a second high school.
School officials say they've been trying to get approval for new schools for 30 years. With the area seeing rapid growth, officials say it's better late than never to start constructing new schools.
"Our students deserve a facility that will meet their needs for this century as opposed to a building that was built and opened in 1940," says Pam McInnis, Superintendent of Warren County Schools.
Construction on both projects is scheduled to begin this fall. The new schools should be open by the fall of 2007.
