Valparaiso Schools Readies For Opening A New Building And Planning for The Future

valparaiso community schools

The Valparaiso Community Schools is going through a construction and renovation process at many buildings -- a process that includes construction of a new elementary school, the first south of U.S. 30 in a growing area of the city. 

I talked to Superintendent Ric Frataccia on "Regionally Speaking; on Monday about all of the ongoing building projects, as well as an update on the long-range redistricting plan.  He says the construction work began after a successful campaign to seek community support for tax increases.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
