La Crescent, MN (WXOW) -

The La Crescent-Hokah School District continues to develop their plan to create a state of the art facility for students in their January 2015 referendum.

The $23,847,561 referendum includes plans to construct a new elementary school and to remodel parts of the current middle school/high school.

La Crescent-Hokah Superintendent Ron Wilke says parts of both facilities are out of date and do not meet the needs of students.

The new elementary school would be constructed on Abnet field in La Crescent. As for the old elementary school, the district has received a proposal from developers to create a senior living facility on the property.

The project cost for the new elementary school is $16,614,417.

The referendum would also make improvements to La Crescent's existing high school and middle school. This includes renovations to the school's science wing, gymnasium and creating a secure entrance to the building.

The project cost of renovations to the middle school/high school is $7,233,144.

"We're seeking to provide our families and our students with the best we can possibly offer," said Superintendent Wilke.
