$1.7 Million Designated For Land Purchase Around NCHS

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

$ 1.7 million has been designated for land acquisition around Natrona County High School. It’s a small step forward in a bogged down construction process. The NC school board approved earmarking the dollars at it’s Monday night meeting.

Negotiations with the State School Facilities Department continue over, amongst other issues, a construction timeline that meets everyone’s perceived needs.

Adding acreage will bring the high school closer to the recommended foot print for a school of its size. It now sits on about 20 acres, but state standards recommend 55.

“And it will also help us in staging the construction project and possibly providing locations for swing-space for students while we’re working on remodeling parts of the existing school.”

Mark Antrim is associate superintendent for facilities and technology with Natrona County School District.

Keeping students in school during construction is something the district wants and is at the heart of a disagreement with the State School Facilities Department and Commission. The SFC has suggested NC students move to the Kelly Walsh campus for the renovation period. Those negotiations continue.
