Sioux Falls’ growing school population is why the district is building three new schools.
It now has eight possible sites the district and architects are considering for the new high school.
Superintendent Brian Maher says there’s a lot to be considered before selecting a site like the cost of the property, access to the property and the cost to develop it.
“We don’t want to rush it we want to make sure we build on the appropriate land, but we also want to do that as quickly as is prudent,” Maher said.
Maher says the district hopes to have a site for the new high school selected by the Board of Education’s next meeting which is November 13.
