    School Board unanimously approves phased Master Plan approach for modernization and expansion of Sumner High School

    At the June 18 School Board meeting, Superintendent Dent presented two recommendations to the Board regarding the path forward for Sumner High School’s modernization and expansion project. The School Board unanimously approved:

    • Implementation of the Sumner High School Project Review Task Force's recommendation for a phased Master Plan approach for the modernization and expansion of Sumner High School, which consists of an Initial Phase to be built now, and a future buildout of facilities under the Master Plan.

    • Engaging consultants to plan for a bond proposition, which is necessary to carry out buildout of the Master Plan, with the goal to put a bond proposition before the voters as soon as reasonably possible.

    Next, the District will form a Facilities Steering Committee that will work with a construction management firm, with the assistance of a facilitator, to consider the facilities and timing of full buildout of the Master Plan as well as other District needs. Stay tuned for more information on the Facilities Steering Committee and the SHS project timeline.
