The Maryville City School Board on Tuesday, Oct. 16, voted to adopt recommendations that would call for expanding and renovating the high school, expanding the grade levels of the intermediate school and reducing the percentage of tuition students in the system.
The work involving the high school would take place over the next few years to deal with overcrowding spurred on by growth. The plan would require limited property acquisition as opposed to other plans that called for buying large amounts of land in the neighborhood around the school
Another recommendation the board approved was expanding the grades in intermediate school to include fourth through sixth. Currently the school has grades five and six.
The board also voted to limit the percentage of tuition students in the system to no more than four percent.
