Plans reviewed for high school CCA expansion

Jones County High School and two-tiered school bus routes were two big items discussed at a Jones County Board of Education work session.

The May 4 work session was called to order by Board Chairman Ginger Bailey, and Superintendent Chuck Gibson presented opening remarks, paying homage to teachers for National Teacher Appreciation Week and school nutrition workers for National School Nutrition Week.

“The nutrition staff feeds our students’ bodies while our teachers feed their minds,” Gibson said. 

The superintendent introduced Jeff Couch with Robertson Loia Roof Architects & Engineers, who gave a presentation with a plan for the project. Couch said the ninth-grade student population currently housed at Maggie Califf would be moved to the Jones County High School campus.

He said the scope of the project included renovation of a portion of the current Career, Technical and Agricultural Education program space into 12 technologically advanced classrooms. 

Other items contained in the project are renovation of the math hall, update and expansion of the kitchen and cafeteria, a new band/choral building, new CTAE building, and an improved parking lot in front of the campus for more efficient pick up and drop off of students.
