MT. VERNON — School leaders at Mt. Vernon Township High School are continuing to expand the facilities available at the school’s new campus. The school recently broke ground on a new operations building on the south side of the campus.
MVTHS Superintendent Jeff Fritchtnitch says currently all maintenance and operations vehicles and equipment have to drive across town from the old campus to perform work at the new school. He says as the district continues to move and expands its facilities on the new campus, the administration and school board want each new asset to built for the long haul.
The district is also constructing a new storage building next to the new operations building. The total cost of both buildings is about $750-thousand and the funds for the project were available in this year’s district budget without additional funding needed from district taxpayers.
