ROCHESTER, Minn. - As elementary students will be transititioning to the middle and high school building in Adams, Southland School District is looking for funds to update the building and accomodate new students.
In November, the district will vote on 2 questions. One would approve renovating the building and adding a new, secure entrance. An area of the building would be converted into an elementary wing and the media center would be reduced in size to be turned into new classrooms and office space. The other question would approve the building of a new gym, as the school is losing the gym space in Rose Creek.
"We're just asking everyone to get out and vote and make sure that they are informed before they go out to vote, especially if they get mail ballots instead of having to go to their polling places," says Superintendent Jeff Sampson.
The bond referendum would approve $15,800,000 "for acquisition and betterment of school sites and facilities?" and $2,400,000 "for acquisition and betterment of school sites and facilities including the construction of a gymnasium addition."
