The superintendent also updated board members on the progress of a$1.9 million project to construct a new 12-classroom building atEnterprise Attendance Center.

The building will be located in the same place where classes havebeen held in temporary structures for the past few years.

The area has been fenced off for the beginning of infrastructurework, such as plumbing, Brister said.
