Mars Area School Board has decided to build a new middle school

After being presented with two options to deal with concerns about the facility last week, the board on Tuesday directed administration to move forward with a more expensive and intensive demolition, renovation and construction plan.

This option would involve the construction of a new, three-story classroom tower to be located in the current parking lot near the main entrance for a cost of about $21 million. Since that is more than the board feels they are able to spend, they will see if a scaled back version will fit into their $15 to $18 million budget for the project.
