BSD ready to move on new PreK-3 school

Posted: Monday, Mar 11th, 2013

• Superintendent recommends hiring architect, working toward bond issue

BROOKINGS – Brookings School District has needed a new PreK-3 school for several years, Superintendent Roger DeGroot said during a school board work session Friday afternoon.

It waited through a time of economic recession when future growth was unsure, then hesitated when voters were asked last fall to give schools and Medicaid an extra one-cent sales tax revenue.

Now, it’s time to get started.

DeGroot recommended to his school board Friday that the district construct a new PreK-3 school on 20 acres of land it already owns in southwest Brookings. He also recommended the board interview up to four architects and hire a firm for the project by April or May. Finally, upon approval of the design and estimated costs, DeGroot recommended the district work toward passing a bond issue to fund the project.
