This is  not the only large project in the works.

A $35 million middle school will be built on district property at the northwest corner of Akers Street and Riggin Avenue, in northwest Visalia. Opening in 2106, it will be the city’s fifth middle school.

Both projects are being funded by state and local money, including a $60.1 million Measure E school bond that passed in November 2012.
