Workers installed temporary fencing on June 2 around the site for construction of the new USD 231 Advanced Technical Center on Madison Street between the northwest corner of the existing high school building and the District Activity Complex to the west.
The $6,375,000 facility will provide enhanced career and technical courses for Gardner Edgerton students. The Advanced Technical Center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017. Project funding is part of the $29.7 million bond issue approved by school district voters on Feb. 2, 2016.
