BLAIR-TAYLOR, WI (WXOW) - The Blair-Taylor school district prepares to unite its campuses by building a new elementary school on the middle-high school site.
Thursday night they broke ground on the site.
Additions will be made to the current middle-high school thanks to an almost $17 million dollar referendum that passed this year.
All of the elementary students will move into the new building.
Currently the elementary students use the old high school building.
Construction includes adding eleven class rooms, a new gymnasium, auditorium and cafeteria.
Dennis Dervetski, Blair-Taylor Superintendent says "the community basically took off with it and if any credits due it's to the people and parents and community members from all our townships. Once they get engaged you can do anything, and we passed it the first time with flying colors and God bless the community."
Construction will begin next week with a completion date set for September 2014.
