Roosevelt High School of Innovation in Dallas, Texas., has welcomed students back to its partially renovated school. 

Advocate Oak Cliff reports that students were displaced from the campus for a year because of the construction. They returned earlier this month, even though a portion of the school is not completed.

Students attended O.W. Homes Humanities and Communication Academy campus, also in Dallas, during construction last year. 

The $64 million renovation includes new classrooms, a career and technical building, library, cafeteria and kitchen, band and choir halls, culinary arts lab and an administrative suite, which have been completed.

Still under construction are a fine-arts addition that doubles as a storm shelter, a new competition gym, upgrades to outdoor athletics areas and various interior and exterior renovations.

The renovations are expected to be complete in February 2022.
