With ideas ranging from additional classrooms to a makerspace, career tech expansion and a softball complex on the short and long-term projects list, the Perham-Dent School Board plans to focus on facilities needs.
All of the ideas are just that, ideas but some of the projects will come up within the next few years. The school board hopes to work with a consulting agency to prioritize the list, create a plan for these projects and continuous school maintenance projects over the next 10 years, do a demography study on the number of students and understand the costs. The list includes 19 projects with more always being added.
“There’s just constantly questions about what our facilities needs are and future plans,” said Superintendent Mitch Anderson.
