Caldwell considering new high school
Officials with the Caldwell School District say they expect a bump of about 100 students a year for the foreseeable future, and they're looking at building a new high school to accommodate the increase.
The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the district's only existing high school, Vallivue High, is already at capacity.
Superintendent Pat Charlton says the district is in the preliminary stage of pursuing a $50 million bond election resolution to fund a 1,800-student school. If the school board approves the plan and the bond election is successful, the new high school could open as soon as the fall of 2016.
