State Representative Marc Gibbs and ITD engineer Ed Bala came to the Preston School Board meeting to discuss possible changes to the entrance of Preston Junior High School that could help traffic flow. Further study on the proposal is needed and funding would need to be secured.
The Dual Immersion program has been tabled for the time being. Funding issues need to be resolved. The program would cost about $30,000 for training and curriculum supplies. The program needs two classrooms to get started.
“We had about 60 students signed up to start the Dual Immersion program,” said superintendent Joel Wilson. “I will try to inform all of those who signed up the program that is on hold for now.”
The city has given approval for Franklin County High School construction. Construction for the building has begun.
“We are hoping to have the walls up and roof on before snowfall,” Wilson said. Our deadline for the completed building is the end of May.”
The superintendent said the building is nothing fancy and the cost is projected to be between $600,000 and $700,000. The money for the building has already been allocated. The funding for the building can only be used for building and is a separate account and can’t be used for any other purposes, Wilson said.
