The $19.5 million plan to upgrade Baker High School in Baker, La., will include renovations, new construction and demolitions.

Nearly six years after Baker High School in Baker, La., was flooded, plans to repair the damaged campus are moving forward.

The City of Baker (La.) school board has approved a $19.4 million plan to modernize the campus with a mix of renovations, new construction and demolitions, reports The Advocate.

Since the 2016 flood, students from the high school have been housed at the nearby Baker Middle School campus.

When it was built decades ago, the high school had a capacity of about 1,500 students. The renovated high school will have space for about 650 students. The district now has about 400 high school students, about 150 students fewer than four years ago.

Stuart & Company General Contractors is the construction manager, and Manning Architects is the architect.
