Four Classroom Addition To NHHS Placed On Hold Indefinitely After Missouri Senate Overrode Veto Of SB 509

NEW HAVEN, Mo. -  The project of adding a four-classroom wing to the high school has been placed on hold indefinitely after the New Haven School Board voted to reject all bids for construction of the new wing.

However, the board did approve a lease purchase of $500,000 and accepted a bid for HVAC of the middle school wings and all but the oldest wing of the high school. (Completion date is set for August 1.)

“The sole reason for putting the new addition on hold was because the Missouri Legislator overrode Gov. Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 509.  They’re saying that starting in 2017 school funding could be stagnant or even decline”, said New Haven Superintendent Kyle Kruse.  “The potential effect SB 509 will likely have on state school funding would make it difficult for the district to make payments on the backend of the lease purchase for construction of the new wing.”
