Progress being made on new Mitchell High School

MITCHELL, S.D.(KMIT)- Progress on a new Mitchell High School continues as the Mitchell School Board on Tuesday approved the bid for construction management services for the project from Puetz (pitts) Design + Build in Mitchell.  The bid proposals were scored based on three criteria: experience, services provided, and costs and fee structure.  Total cost of the project is expected to be around $35 million.  Mitchell Schools Superintendent Joe Graves says taxes will not be raised to pay for the new school.

The new high scol will be built somewhere on the current campus.
