SELAH, Wash. -- KIMA is following the construction plans for the school district now that voters approved the bond measure.

We learned the district is already working with an architect to come up designs for the schools.

It includes adding a middle school and six classrooms to the high school.

The school district met with the city to discuss building requirements.

One obstacle is a ditch that runs through the proposed property.

Superintendent Steve Chestnut says things are moving forward.

"It's definitely more efficient. That's one reason voters approved it. We will do from five schools to four schools. We will actually tear down most of Robert Lince Elementary," said Chestnut.

The district plans to break ground on the high school expansion in a year.

It will meet with the city again next week.
