Fine Arts Center To Be Considered By Mitchell School Board


A new fine arts center for Mitchell High School is on tonight’s Mitchell School Board agenda.  The board will consider approving a timeline and seeking architectural firms for design and construction of a new MHS Fine Arts Center.  The construction of the center is part of the plan for replacement of Mitchell High School, which is projected to be done sometime around the year 2025.  The agenda proposal states that Mitchell High School, whose choirs, bands, and drama programs are among the best in the state, currently has the worst fine arts facility in the state among the large schools.  The money for the 13.5 million dollar project would come through capital outlay certificates which would be paid off over a 20-year period.  The plan would require no tax increases, as the current capital outlay levy would cover the cost.  Tonight’s meeting begins at 5 pm in Room 114 of the MCTEA building, located on North Capital Street across from the high school.
