LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The North Little Rock School Board is taking steps towards building a new high school.
At a school board meeting Monday evening, members voted to approve the first phase of design development for a new North Little Rock High School. Gerald Cound, the district's director of facility management, said it's been about 40 years since the district has built a new school.
"We have not had a lot of construction in this district for a long time. What a wonderful opportunity for the district to approach education from this perspective," said Cound.
The location for the new high school will be where the current one sits.
Cound said there are still 3 other design developments needed to be approved before they can apply for state funding.
