Jeffersonville High School opens while construction continues
Jeffersonville High School students are going back to school with construction workers. That's because the school is still undergoing a $40 million renovation, and that means some inconveniences for students.
The school says 19 temporary classrooms are within the building so every teacher on staff has their own classroom.
For this $40 million project, the school is adding approximately 50,000 square feet of space.
There will be a new administration wing to bring all services together. Right now, they're located in different parts of the building. The library and cafeteria will also be renovated.
The school is making sure it minimizes the distraction of construction while teaching. Administrators say the project is expected to last for a couple of years.
And new this year for Greater Clark Schools is a longer school day. Instructional time is now about seven hours, which exceeds the state standards
