Tea Area School Seeking Public Input On Expansion

March 18, 2014, 5:50 PM by Jared Ransom

Tea Area School Seeking Public Input On Expansion
TEA, SD -

After seeing two bonds fail by a small number of votes, the Tea Area School District is asking the community for input before moving forward with an expansion plan.

School Superintendent Jennifer Lowery says on average, the school district is growing by five percent each year, making the need for more facilities and space a top priority. She says people want to see the school succeed, but the price tag may be a bit too high.

"The super majority of the Tea area residents have said, 'Yes,' two times, so we know we're close. We just have to make minor adjustments to make it palatable for everybody and try to compromise," Lowery said.

Anyone in the district is encouraged to share their thoughts about the expansion plans at an input meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the District Education Center.
