The state of Ohio has approved $30 million toward a new middle and high school in the Finneytown district.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the middle/high school is the second phase of Finneytown's K-12 building project. The first phase, Finneytown Elementary, opened to students earlier this year.
The entire project will cost nearly $48 million.
The new building will be constructed at the site of the district's existing high school and will serve students in grades seven to 12. Finneytown superintendent Laurie Banks said she hopes the secondary campus will open in the fall of 2025.
Finneytown voters approved a $27.9 million bond issue in 2019 that set the K-12 building project into motion. The project is co-funded by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.
Skanska USA and Emersion Design/Fanning-Howey are Finneytown's design partners for the K-12 project.
