A design team is working to create a new bus loop, a reconstructed office including a secure entrance, a new STEM lab, two additional classrooms and six additional small spaces for small group learning.
The site will also have redesigned parking for improved traffic flow, including a new bus loop.
The construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2020 and conclude in the fall of 2020.
