Construction Begins On Aberdeen's New Tech School

Construction Begins On Aberdeen's New Tech School

Work is underway on a new tech school right next to Central High School in Aberdeen.

Crews are completing dirt work just south of the high school where the $5 million building will stand.  A grant from the state is helping pay for the project.

Administrators haven't decided which programs to offer in the tech school, but will announce those by the beginning of January.
Workforce needs will drive that decision.

"We're taking a look at what our workforce development needs are across the community and across the state of South Dakota and we're hoping we can tie into that as well as some of the dual credit opportunity available for students," Aberdeen Superintendent Becky Guffin said. 

Contractors expect to finish the project in time for next school year.  State grants are also helping pay for other projects designed to meet workforce needs.
