|Richwood school on track, Sterlington cutting it close|
The new Richwood and Sterlington schools remain on schedule to be completed by the first of the year, meaning students could be in their new schools for the spring 2011 semester.
The two new school construction projects are costing the Ouachita Parish school system $25 million. The projects are being funded by a property tax extension approved by eastern Ouachita Parish voters two years ago.
The property tax extension provided the parish school system with roughly $40 million for construction of the two new schools plus renovations at existing schools in eastern Ouachita.
Ouachita Parish Schools Superintendent Dr. Bob Webber said parents, teachers, students and members of the Richwood and Sterlington communities are excited about the new schools.
"The timelines are good," Webber said. "We're in real good shape with Richwood Middle School. We're close to being ready to move into that school. The plan is to open school after Christmas and start the second semester at Richwood."
