STEVENSVILLE — There's still lots of work to finish, but Stevensville Schools are passing a major milestone in the district's multi-million dollar upgrade, as all of the new steel is "in the air".

The $20 million in improvements to the Primary School and high school, approved by voters in two bonds in 2019, are changing the face of the Stevensville campus.

Quality Construction and its subcontractors are right on schedule, even with the challenges of working around the pandemic, and the school year.

In the past few weeks, crews have finished erecting the new sections for the elementary, and the new Agriculture and Industrial Trades and Technology building on the east side of campus.

"Any remodel project has its problems and detractions. When you're digging holes in the ground you find things that you weren't expecting and this has been no exception to that," Stevensville School Superintendent Bob Moore said.

"But we're at the point now where we're pouring concrete and coming out of the ground. And the steel erection on the new addition to the high school and the new addition to the elementary school is complete at this point in time," Moore added.

In fact, a few of the renovated classrooms are already being used, and the district is benefitting from the installation of new equipment.
