The Fox Creek High School board of directors met with representatives from the USDA to sign a letter of intent to add new additions to the school.

The new additions will include two updated computer labs, an art room, a band room, four additional classrooms, a gymnasium and a new commons area. Plans for additions to the building began when the original Phase 1 of the school was developed.

Interim Principal Josh Trahan said, “The plan has always been to build Phase 2. We were just not sure when we would have the student count to support the facility, and our board used excellent discernment in waiting until we knew we had the funding.”

Over the summer, through the hard work of Sherolyn Bishop, Fox Creek Board treasurer, the application for the approval of the USDA-backed loan was approved. The meeting with the USDA to sign for the intent to use the funds was just the first step in the process toward erecting the new facility.

The anticipated time line for the building is eight to 12 months, and the school plans to see students in the new facility as early as fall of next year.
