CURRENT PROJECTS

 

As part of our Capital Improvement Plan, the Board of Trustees for the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District 25 has selected an architect firm to lead the project for improvements to Pocatello High School. The current status of the project is in the planning, design and concept phase. The goals and objectives for the project are to:

 

  1. Increase student safety by connecting main building with auditorium and gym areas.
  2. Provide ADA accessibility to main and upper floors of PHS and new areas.
  3. Provide additional classrooms and “commons” area to accommodate increased student enrollment. 
  4. Create a clear main entrance and centrally located administrative offices.
  5. Help alleviate lunch room congestion and lack of space in basement cafeteria.
