The Mitchell School Board approved a proposal to move forward with planning for a new $13.5 million fine arts center for Mitchell High School.

The 1,200 seat center is part of an overall plan for a new high school, which will be built in 2025.

It is hoped that the new center will be able to host state events and contests.  The approved timeline would allow the district to advertise for proposals from architectural firms on April 19th and April 26th.  It also allows the school board several opportunities to decide not to build the center if necessary.  The fine arts center would be paid for with capital outlay certificates over twenty years.  Graves said there would be no tax increase to pay for the project.

If the school board approves the process every step of the way, the new fine arts center could be open in the fall of 2016.
