Board plans ceremony for groundbreaking
NORTH JACKSON — The Jackson-Milton Board of Education called a special work session Thursday to discuss a groundbreaking ceremony set for next month to usher in a new high school/middle school.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. Aug. 16 in a field near the elementary school, 14110 Mahoning Ave., and will feature remarks by board members and Superintendent Buck Palmer, as well as the unveiling of a 3-D building design.
Construction for the $14.5 million, 81,000-square-foot building, which will house pupils in grades six through 12, could get under way in spring 2008. The facility is set to open in September 2009 near the elementary school.
