Construction on new high school on track to meet deadline
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. — The school year is winding down for thousands of students and teachers across our area.
However, the momentum to finish a brand new high school in the Local 6 region is gaining speed every day.
In fact, construction of the new consolidated McCracken County High School is roughly 55 percent completed. The school is slated to open in 2013, in time for the start of the school year.
"We've got some of the best craftsman in this part of the world employed on this project," said Bill Boyd, vice president of A&K construction.
School Spokesperson Molly Goodman said the school system hopes to hire a principal for the school by this July. Even though school won't open until 2013, the work begins immediately.
"They will work on curriculum planning and programming, they'll work on scheduling and personnel, all of the preparatory work that it's going to take to open in all of 2013," Goodman said.
