NU School Board Talks Referendum 23 Aug 13

The New Ulm District 88 School Board on Thursday approved a 10-year plan involving a voter-approved bond referendum to construct additions on the high school. The details involve redesigning existing shop space into an Engineering and Technology Center, developing the athletic fields into a contest site, space planning for gymnastics, and moving forward with plans to sell the District Administrative Center former middle school. A task force will be formed to further refine the plan, and public input will be sought throughout the process. The proposed date for the bond referendum would be the fall of 2014, with construction then starting in the spring of 2015 if the bond is approved. The work would take around a year to complete.
