Neosho starts school overcrowded but with plans to add space



It's the first day of school for students in the  Neosho School district where overcrowding is still an issue.  But the district has a plan to solve it.
Three FEMA safe room grant projects have been approved including one that will add 18 classrooms to the high school.
 The district currently uses 20 mobile classrooms and the new two story  structure at the high school  would help eliminate many of those.
At South Elementary a shelter that serves as a gymnasium with a stage on one end  will be constructed with help from FEMA.   And a shelter will also be built at George Washington Carver Elementary. 
The cost for the district for all three projects will be about $6 million dollars with monies coming from reserve funds.  Plans for the high school structure are being submitted to officials in  Jefferson City for approval.
