WEST - West Independent School District has broken ground on the new 224,000-sf combined middle and high school campus on Jerry Mashek Dr.
The campus is what Mayor Tommy Muska calls the final benchmark in the town’s rebuilding efforts since the April 2013 West Fertilizer Co. plant explosion.
Completion is scheduled for December 2015.
The new campus will hold sixth through 12th grades and include about 50 classrooms, three gyms, two libraries, a band hall, auditorium and cafeteria. The middle and high school grades will be divided, with each school receiving one-half of the campus.
The total cost of the project could be up to $50 million, paid for through insurance money and federal funds.
