Natrona County School District officials have broken ground on the new Roosevelt High School and the Center for Advanced and Professional Studies.

District officials, state officials and students broke ground on the site during the Thursday morning ceremony.

Steve Hopkins, the superintendent of the Natrona County School District, says the campus will provide an expanded home for current Roosevelt students. He also says it will provide a proper home for students that want to take a career-driven, practical education pathway.

“(The CAPS) facility is available to our juniors and seniors (so they can) have the opportunity to take their traditional learning from the classroom and apply that knowledge and experience on what we call industry-grade equipment,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins says construction should be completed by December 2015. Students will likely move in the following month.

The district estimates the campus will provide an educational home for 720 full-time students total. CAPS will provide a home for about 500 students.

CAPS will include educational programming for the district’s communication, design, agriculture, architecture, manufacturing, health sciences and human services courses.
