LEBANON, Tenn. – Plans to build a new high school in Lebanon are moving forward.
About 15 construction companies placed bids to build the new Lebanon High School Wednesday afternoon.
The old building is more than 50 years old and has had problems with large cracks in the walls and overcrowding.
The new Lebanon High School will cost approximately $50 million to build and will be paid for using bonds and federal dollars. The bonds will be for a period of 22 years.
The Wilson County School Board is expected to make a decision on the winning bid in early August.
The new school is scheduled to open in time for the 2012-2013 school year.
