Rapid City Area Schools Must Decide Future of Some School Buildings

KOTA TV and the Rapid City Journal report that Rapid City Area Schools will need to consider options including renovations and closing some schools in future years.  MGT of America, a consultant, unveiled their blueprints for the upcoming changes.  They list two possible plans.  The Rapid City Journal reports that the plan could cost $333 million over a decade, but Jim Hansen, School Board President, says the board of education will decide what advice to follow and what changes to make. KOTA TV reports Wilson, Robbinsdale, Canyon Lake and South Canyon are among the schools that would close while other schools would need to be expanded.
