Archer City ISD: students can step into new school come October

ARCHER CITY, TX (KAUZ) -

Students across Texoma will begin another school year on Monday. Pupils in Archer City will head to class in the same contemporary buildings from last year as work on the new junior high and high school continues. 

"We are working hard, but we want it done right," Archer City ISD Superintendent, CD Knobloch said. 

The $17.7 million bond that is paying for the construction was passed narrowly by voters in 2014. Work began the following spring. More than a year later, crews are working around the clock to have the school complete before Christmas break. 

"We knew it would be a lengthy process because we were demolishing the old building and building right on its print," Knobloch said. 

The construction firm hoped to have the building complete before school started this year. But Knobloch said he thinks there are about eight weeks of work or so to go. 

"In October we should be finished," he said. 

In the meantime, students and faculty will get the school year going in buildings on the campus grounds. The two large buildings have ten classrooms in each and Knobloch said they have been very efficient.

"They meet our needs and we will stay in those until the building is finished," he said.

Knobloch said the new building will be conducive to modern education where the old building was not. But come October, junior high and high school students will be in new classrooms in a brand new school.

Other renovations being paid for by the bond like restroom renovations and computer and science lab touch ups are near completion.
