Board of Ed approves feasibility study for Mardela Middle/High School
SALISBURY, Md. – After months of input from school officials, parents, and students. It seems as though Mardela Middle and High School will be getting a much needed makeover. Recently the Wicomico County Board of Education approved option three out of four feasibility studies done to decide how to move forward with renovations for the school. Officials tell us the total project is expected to cost close to $71 million. They add that option three will allow for the current building to be updated, provide more space for students, and improve the quality of the current layout.
“This building that we currently have at Mardela Middle and High School is aging. The major renovations are going to be tearing down some areas for major additions, we’re looking to have some two story parts of the building, and we also need another gymnasium area,” said Wicomico County Public Schools public information officer, Paul Butler.
Butler adds that the next step is to submit the feasibility study to the state. And if all goes well they hope to begin the construction process by 2023.
