The Maroa-Forsyth school district recently announced a 10-year facility plan for the districts campuses.

The District in 2006 began a 5-year facility plan, and those plans have now become a reality. Superintendent of Maroa-Forsyth Schools Mike Williams explains the previous plan focused on renovations to the grade school, to the high school football fields athletic facility, and completing the grade school in Forsyth.

With phase one of the project set to get underway very soon, phase two of the process will see an addition put on to the high school. Williams explains the districts enrollment numbers show the district will outgrow the high school.

Williams notes the addition is tentatively set for 3-5 years, and will be on the north end of the high school. The plan for the district is to put in an additional 8 classrooms, at which point will help them increase maximum capacity and keep the school current for their growing enrollment numbers.

Williams says the district is excited about the future of the district with the many changes they will see in the next several years. He says being diligent with the money the district has is a priority, and he feels the plan they have in store for their facilities is an extension of that.
