Learning SpaceWe are exploring ways to update and modernize Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. The first step is determing what's possible with our current schools. Teams of teachers have been working with Hummel Architects to develop concepts that address the needs that have been identified at each school. In July, the Board of Trustees will review these concepts, as well as preliminary cost estimates. They will consider that information and other factors and then later this summer they are expected to decide the best way to move forward with this project to upgrade and improve our school buildings.
