After narrowing down the proposals to either a 700-student addition to the high school for $33 million, or a 1400-student addition for $43 million - each of which would also include $14 million for a new elementary school as a second question - the board was able to finalize a plan for a $39 million 700-student expansion which would also include a new elementary school.
