Lincoln School District Superintendent Mike Milstead said at last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board’s (LPSB) Building & Grounds Committee that planned Ruston High School (RHS) special education facility improvements will receive increased priority shortly. About $ 1/2 million in improvements is budgeted, according to the district’s capital outlay plan.
Said Milstead, “That something that’s an issue that for me would be a top priority.” He added that the plan will be updated and presented to the board later this summer.

The items in green are those funded from a $20 million bond issue approved by voters in 2013, while those highlighted in yellow are projects funded from general fund recurring revenues.
The committee also approve a $1.6 million project at RHS that will add classrooms for the New Tech program, add soccer facilities, replace the auditorium roof, and replace the girl’s gym floor.
