Construction started in May of 1996 on a new High School and Elementary School and also extensive remodeling to the former High School to house the Middle School. The massive project was made possible by the support of our taxpayers and the Ohio Schools Facility Commission.

In 2009 and 2011 the District partnered again with the OSFC as a Look-Back District. This project involved the replacement of the roof on the Middle School; fire alarm upgrades district wide, exterior water proofing, stucco repair, keyless entry system, some pavement replacement, catch basins and replaced the shingle roof on the Elementary School.
