Sheldon Schools Superintendent Gives Construction Update

Sheldon, Iowa — Planning continues for a new addition and renovation at the Sheldon Community School District’s High School in Sheldon.

A 19-million-dollar bond issue was passed in November. It needed at least 60 percent “yes” votes to pass, and received 72.66 percent “yes” votes.

The total project cost is $32.9 million. Sheldon Community Schools Superintendent Cory Myer says they have signed papers with the architect and the construction manager.

Myer says they’d like to break ground on the project this upcoming summer — 2024. And they hope to be completely done with it — with students ready to start the 2026-27 school year. Of course, the construction will have to be worked around for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 school years.
