Board Begins To Narrow ReDesign Options
The Board of Trustees is continuing to review various options for updating and modernizing Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. Based on the cost estimates of the redesigns, board members feel it makes sense to explore the idea of a redesign of Skyline and the replacement of Idaho Falls High School. Before any final decisions can be made, board members have identified some key questions that need to be answered: Those questions include: Where would a new high school be located if it were built? What would happen to the current IFHS building? What would be included in the redesign of Skyline? The board will continue working on these issues in the coming weeks. The ultimate goal is to create schools that support the kind of engaging and relevant instruction our teachers are striving to deliver. See Hummel Architects' final report on the various proposals, as well as cost estimates from Bateman Hall and financial considerations from financial consultants. The goal is to redesign the buildings so they can support the instruction needed to ensure our graduates have the knowlege, skills and attributes they need to be successful beyond high school.
