PLAN B: Johnston Board To Vote On New Proposal
The Johnston School District is working to come up with a new plan for the high school they hope to build.
In September, voters failed to approve a bond referendum that would’ve helped pay for the construction of a proposed school.
Soon after, administrators went back to the drawing board and spent more time listening to the community in order to come up with a new proposal.
The result is a plan that is $10 million cheaper than the original.
The designs for the building went from three stories to two with a price tag of $112 million.
They district says they would also hold off on building a new football stadium.
The board will meet on Monday to decide if they want to move forward with the new plan. If they approve it, the public will get to vote in another bond referendum in April or June.
