Project description: The Reeds Spring School District is on track to replace its outdated Gibson Technical Center by the start of the 2024-25 school year with a building that is roughly 26,000 square feet larger and will allow for the expansion of programming, Superintendent Cody Hirschi told Springfield Business Journal in past reporting. District officials say some 400 students from 11 districts use the current building, and that represents a 40% enrollment increase over the past 10 years. The new building will have the capacity to serve up to 600 students, with space available for future additions, officials say. Programs taught in the center include construction technology, welding, automotive technology, emergency medical and culinary arts, all of which have waiting lists, officials say, and the new center will add more engineering and criminal justice to the lineup. The new building is adjacent to Reeds Spring High School, and its design includes a large commons area and a 70-seat lecture hall.
