Meeting to discuss B-E school buildings

The Brandon-Evansville School District will host a community meeting to figure out how to move forward with a solution for the district's aging buildings.

In August, district voters rejected a plan to build a new $38.75 million K-12 school building in Brandon.

The school board and district want to hear from the voters on a facilities plan.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 7, in the gymnasium at the Brandon School, 206 West Third Street. All community members are invited, especially residents of the Brandon-Evansville School District.

The meeting will be facilitated by Vaughn Dierks from Wold Architects and Engineers.

A new school would have replaced the two current schools — the Brandon school, which was built in 1957 and the Evansville school, which was built in 1917. Both schools have undergone several renovations and additions.
