The Lyndon USD 421 Board of Education approved to put a $12 million project to consolidate all educational facilities – for a public referendum in early May.

The project would demolish the old high school and elementary school – and build a nearly 65,000 square foot building on the north side of 6th Avenue.

If approved – it would financed through the sale of bonds and would increase the mill levy by 23 mills.
