Construction at both Jefferson City high schools near completion

The Jefferson City School District cut ceremonial ribbons at multiple school buildings to mark the end of a construction project that began in 2017.

The district held tours on Sunday to showcase the renovations at Jefferson City High School and Nichols Career Center, as well as the newly constructed Capital City High School.

District Superintendent Larry Linthacum told ABC 17 News that Sunday's event was about celebrating with the community. "Especially with something that they said couldn't be done, as far as having two high schools in Jefferson City," he said.

Renovations at Jefferson City High School included improvements to classrooms, administrative offices and fine arts areas.

Classes at Capital City High School started in the Fall, after the construction of the building began in 2018.

Funding for both projects came from a tax that was approved by voters in 2017, according to the district.
