Plans for a multi-million-dollar upgrade to South St. Paul High School are moving forward with construction bids expected to be opened next week.

The 1920s-era school, also known as South St. Paul Secondary, will have its original gymnasium demolished and replaced by a 29,000-square-foot addition designed by Wold Architects that will house sixth-grade classrooms, a scene shop, a multipurpose recreational space and a loading dock.

Other upgrades, approved as part of a $26.6 million bond referendum passed by South St. Paul voters last year, include a redesigned media center and a newly designed Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) wing.

Updates to the South St. Paul Packer Activity Center and running track are also on the agenda.

Special School District No. 6 said all the interior plans for the construction project are currently being finalized with opening bids for the project set for April 8.

The construction work will start immediately after the school year is completed, beginning with the 6th grade center, which will be three stories tall. It has been designed to match a 1994 addition to the high school.
