Construction Update - "Building for the Future" 

We’ve had a long winter, but that hasn’t stopped progress on our new school building.  The steel structure is in place for each part of the building – classrooms, residence and gym. Now they are adding exterior walls which will enclose the building.  Each day we get another step closer to our goal.
We are evaluating the various technologies that will enhance the new school and demonstrate ways the world can be made more accessible for everyone. 
We have worked with TSP architectural designers to select the interior and exterior colors and finishes. We will be incorporating the school colors in a number of places. The building committee meets every two weeks to discuss the bid packages and timeline and address any issues throughout the process. We have monthly meetings with students and staff to share updates.
Nick Bares and Jim Deide from Journey Construction visited with the students to talk about the progress and answer any questions.  Once the weather gets better we will arrange other visits to the site so they can experience the whole process. 
As an accredited school, we need to meet the state requirement for hours of instruction. We will do so by extending each school day next year by 15 minutes. The building is scheduled to be completed by November.  We plan to send students home at Thanksgiving and have them return in mid-January. That will allow us time to pack, move and set up in the new building. When students return in January of 2020, they will be in the new SDSBVI.
