A Note from the Superintendent
The community passed a Levy to build the "New" Middle School several years ago. The Middle school debt has been paid to the point it is possible to move forward with other facility renovations. Much needed renovations at Savannah High School have been in the planning stage for over seven years. The current financial environment makes it advantageous to move forward with new financing that can be structured to allow for renovations at other district campuses after the high school renovations are complete. These projects will be done without any increase in levy or monies taken from other parts of the budget.
Keep an eye on these endeavors as the Board works to secure financing for these projects.
