For the better part of 2021, residents of Mahomet-Seymour were surveyed and pursued for opinions on the future of the school district's facilities.


The district faces a growing population which is leading to a growing student body and creating spacing issues in almost every building. Superintendent Dr. Lindsey Hall indicates all that interaction has resulted in a plan ready to present for the Board of Education next month that will, if approved, then go to taxpayers in June.



While final figures on the cost of the project are not in yet, Dr. Hall anticipates estimates coming in at around $100-million with all the renovating that will need to be done in addition to the new projected middle school building.



If the school board approves the plan in February, Dr. Hall says the next step will be to educate the community on the proposal so they know exactly what they will be voting on in June.



Dr. Hall says as they look to expand on space in the district's other buildings, there will also be a focus to make sure those improvements bring the space to a 21st century-friendly learning environment.
