This, after a $15 million bond was passed in May.
“Lots of studies have shown that nicer facilities tend to help students attitude, help teachers attitude, help parents attitude and makes it more positive to the learning experience,” he said.
The project includes a new junior high and high school, which will remove their need for four portables they currently use, and it's also creating an ag. barn, and gymnasium.
Work is already underway, but like most construction, they've already discovered a hole in their plan.
Geo-technicians are having to test the soil and now have to remove old concrete beams which were left from previous construction work years ago.
But Dyes says that won't offset their project time line or impede on the projects main goals.
“To get students out of portables, to have better science labs, and then to renovate our current junior high and high school building,” he said.
And, while Dyes says construction will be somewhat disruptive to students, it will happen around student activities and get them closer to their ultimate goal: better schools for the Holliday Eagles.
School officials say though work has began they plan to have an official ground breaking in October.
They think the entire project will be finished by November 2014.
