Voters agree to replace high school destroyed by fire

April 1, 2008
Jones (Okla.) High School burned down in December

Voters in Jones, Okla., have approved a $12.4 million bond measure to replace a high school that was destroyed in a fire. A fire destroyed Jones High School in December and damaged an old gymnasium that stood nearby. Since then, students have been attending classes in seven portable buildings on the campus' east side and in a gym not damaged by the blaze. Plans call for the construction of a 63,250-square-foot building with 26 classrooms and a cafeteria. The school will accommodate 400 students. School officials also plan to build a 23,850-square-foot gymnasium that will seat 1,000 people.
