Upper Dublin district is the first to take advantage of a new tax-relief law in Pennsylvania.

The Upper Dublin (Pa.) district has gotten the go-ahead from voters to build a $119 million high school. The vote makes it the first district in the state to get public approval for such a project under a Pennsylvania tax-relief law passed last year. the old district high school, which opened in 1948 as a junior high, will be torn down and replaced in phases by the new building, which will be at the same site. Construction is to start in June 2008 and be completed in December 2011, but students will be using some parts of the new building by September 2009.
