The Johnston school board will decide tomorrow if it’ll move forward on its new plan of building a new high school.

In September, voters failed to approve a bond referendum to pay for the school’s construction.

After talking to the public, the school board is now considering a new proposal.

This one is $10-million cheaper at $112-million.

The new proposal eliminates the new football stadium and is a now a two story building.

If approved by the school board, the proposal could go before voters as early as April.
