Facilities study for Humboldt School District shows updates needed

By Alex Benzegala

Humboldt, IA – At last week’s Humboldt School Board Meeting, the board heard from Ryan Ellsworth from Estes Construction in Davenport on a recent facilities study. Here’s Humboldt School Superintendent Jim Murray.

Murray says that other priorities include the old middle school, air quality and classroom space at the elementary schools and current middle school.

The next steps in the renovations are to sort through all the information using a facilities committee, and also figure out how to fund the projects. Murray says the ultimate goal is to have a master plan that would be up to 10 years in addressing district facility needs.
