$26 million conversion planned in Southeast Polk district

The cost to convert the existingSoutheast Polk High School facility in Pleasant Hill, Iowa, to a junior high is estimated at more than $26 million. Improvements include more natural lighting, better handicap access, technology upgrades, additional locker rooms and safer bus loading and unloading areas.

A music department with two instrumental music rooms, two vocal music rooms, two fine arts rooms and a space for an orchestra program would be situated where the high school industrial technology classes have been held. District leaders expect to have the facility ready for junior high use by fall 2010. The architect is Frevert-Ramsey-Kobes Architects-Engineers. To read The Des Moines Register article, click here.
