Plans progressing for new Williston High School

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- Plans for a $57 million high school in the western North Dakota oil patch hub of Williston are starting to take shape.

Architects are working on plans, and school officials are determining whether to break ground in the fall or the spring.

Voters in June overwhelming approved a $34 million bond measure to help fund the new school, which will be built on about 30 acres of donated farmland northwest of the city.

The current high school is on a plot that measures only about 5 acres, and booming enrollment has led to space problems.

Superintendent Viola LaFontaine says the district's enrollment has increased about 40 percent over the past five years, to about 3,200 students.

The new high school is scheduled to open in fall 2016.
