e school also would get a gymnasium, media center and a cafeteria with a stage as well as athletic fields and facilities.

Plans also call for the construction of a fifth elementary school near Rockwell and NW 150, a 50-classroom expansion at the high school and a $28 million performing arts and athletic center.

Another $10 million would be used to buy new computers, classroom equipment and other digital devices.

The middle school is the first of the projects scheduled to be built. School officials broke ground on the new school in April and hope to have the building complete by the fall of 2011.

Jim Benson, who has served on the school board since 2001, predicted the new schools and additions will spur a new boom of residential and commercial construction in the district.

Benson said the new facilities likely will create more home construction, but he thinks it also will entice more businesses to move to the area.

"I think this is a turning point for us,” he said.
