Higher-than-expected costs led the North Central Schools Board of Education to appropriate more money for the new high school.
The board approved a resolution to approve a budget amendment for $307,828. This will boost the budget for the 35,000-square-foot structure to $9,928,858, Superintendent Ken Boyer said.
The new school is scheduled to open in the fall. It will replace the current high school which dates back to the 1920s. The old school will be torn down, Boyer said.
The high school will be the district’s newest school since the elementary school opened in 1993.
