Remond Schools Superintendent Mike McIntosh says they are in the final stages of a 110 million dollar massive expansion and improvement project for the district.
The biggest part of that voter approved project was about 72 million for the new high school, Ridgeview High.
The district is also winding down on a 10 million dollar improvement and update to Redmond High School. McIntosh was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town on Thursday and gives us an update.
"AND IF YOU'VE DRIVEN BY REDMOND HIGH SCHOOL LATELY- YOU'LL NOTICE NEW WINDOWS- INSIDE IT LOOKS IDENTICAL - IT'S NEW - IT'S MODERN - we didn't want to have to have the "haves" and "Have nots" in the district- at least structurally speaking."
He also says that a healthy cross town rivalry is developing between the two schools.
When the district announced the new boundaries for the two high schools there was "barely" any controversy. And when the dust settled and the enrollment numbers were available, he noticed only a 25 student difference in the schools, and that's in a district of about 7000 students.
