West Fargo School Board Approves New Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

The West Fargo school board unanimously approved plans to build another elementary school Monday night. And they did it without voter approval.

The new school is expected to cost at least $11 million. Board members say they have the funding available to build the school without raising any taxes. They say they need to act as soon as possible to stay ahead of the rapidly growing school district.

"The growth, the houses that are going up, and the apartment buildings are coming in faster than any of us ever envisioned that they would, and a lot of those homes and apartments include small children, so we need to have adequate space for our students," says Board President Kay Kiefer.

The new building is expected to break ground on 52nd Avenue South in spring of 2014. It should be completed for students in the fall of 2015.
