New Schools Needed for Twin Falls
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Three new schools may be in the future for Twin Falls. Twin Falls School District Superintendent Dr. Wiley Dobbs says a committee recommended two elementary schools be built in Twin Falls.
It also says a new middle school is a needed and an addition to Canyon Ridge to expand the student capacity up to 1680 students. The long–range facilities plan is a series of recommendations put together to address the needs throughout the Twin Falls School District due to growth. Dr. Dobbs says student population has grown by 700 students in just a year. All of the elementary schools in the district are currently over capacity.
Both middle schools and Canyon Ridge High School have reached capacity, which means any new growth would put those schools over. The board will still have to determine which direction it wants to take the district. See video here...
