The Marshall Board of Education met in special session Tuesday night to discuss options on a new school building. Superintendent Ryan Huff presented two plans.

Option 1 would be to construct a new building for grades 1-5. The cost of $22-million does not include the purchase of land for the new building.

Option 2 would construct a new High School and move grades 1-5 to the current High School building. This would also lead to moving the baseball diamond and putting turf on the football field for both soccer and football, plus a performing arts center. Option 2 has an estimated cost of $32.5 million; higher than the district’s bonding capacity.

In both options, Southeast, Eastwood, Benton and Satellite would be demolished after a waiting period to see if anyone would purchase them.

The discussion will continue, as no action was taken Tuesday night.
