Board asked to hire more architects for school projects
Published: November 20,2012
HERNANDO — DeSoto County school board members will be asked to hire architects for expansion projects at two more schools as the state’s largest system continues to grapple with growth.
The Commercial Appeal reports Hernando Hills and Southaven elementary schools would be targeted if board members approve the hirings.
Last month, the board unanimously approved hiring Hernando-based AERC architects to plan a four-classroom building at Hernando Elementary. Jerry White, the system’s director of physical plants, said at the time that board members would be asked to approve moving ahead with the other projects at their next meeting.
The projects are designed to accommodate continuing growth in the 41-school system, which reported an official enrollment of 32,769 this year.
