Ground was broken recently in Adams for the Southland School District’s construction, remodeling and renovation project that will consolidate the district’s elementary school in Rose Creek with the facility in Adams, making it a K-12 facility. Brian Schoen, the Superintendent of the district spoke with KAUS and talked about how the project is progressing thus far…
Schoen went on to talk about what will be accomplished when the project is completed…
Voters in the Southland School District approved an $18.2 million bond referendum in November of 2018 to help address facility needs as well as adding more classroom spaces and upgrading technology. There were two questions on the ballot, including one for renovations at $15.8 million and another for a gym at $2.4 million. The district is also continuing a fundraising campaign to help raise money to build a new auditorium for $630,000. The United Farmers State Bank in Adams started off with gifting $100,000 to the district to put toward the space as well as promising to match an additional $150,000 for donations to the project that was not originally part of the voted bond referendum.
Interested parties can view updates on the project on the district’s webpage, www.isd500.k12.mn.us, and click on the ‘facilities information” tab.
