After a new high school is built, Hug High in Reno will become a career and technical academy.

2,500-student high school planned in Washoe County (Nev.) district

Campus will be built on golf course owned by the county.

The Washoe County (Nev.) School District plans to build a new high school and convert an existing high school to a career and technical center.

KOLO-TV reports that the district will use sales funds approved in 2016 to acquire part of the Wildcreek Golf Course in Sparks and build a 400,000-square-foot high school with a capacity of 2,500 students.

When the new school opens in 2021, nearby Hug High School in Reno will become a career and technical academy open to students from across the district.

Hug High has a capacity of about 1,450 students. The new school will be larger to ease crowding at other high schools in the district.

The land on which the 18-hole golf course sits is owned by Washoe County. The school system would purchase part of the tract, and the county would continue to operate a nine-hole course on the remaining land.
