School district to invest in 7,500 sq. ft. multipurpose building

The Pawhuska Board of Education on Friday, April 15 unanimously approved a contract between the school district and MA+ Architecture, of Oklahoma City, to move ahead with a project to build a new elementary multipurpose building.

Superintendent David Cash said federal COVID-19 relief funds are to be used to pay for the project. There will be no need to draw from the district’s General Fund or Building Fund. He told the Journal-Capital that he would like for the new building to be completed by about September 2022, but with federal funds being used and the possibility of supply chain disruptions it could easily be later than that.

Cash said the new building is to be 7,500 square feet in size — a gymnasium type of structure that could be used for school assemblies, award programs, youth basketball and wrestling, and as a shelter during bad weather.
