Ground was broken Thursday for the new Dublin Intermediate School, which will be located next to the elementary school. Approximately 30 people attended.

DISD Superintendent Roy Neff said major work should start up within a day. In the background a trenching machine was already busy.

The push will be to get the new multi-million dollar school open by the beginning of the next school year, after delays in state funding.

“This was an exciting day for our school district, Board President Mike Jurney said. “The building that this is going to replace is outdated and functionally obsolete. We meet a lot of needs and address a lot of issues with this new building.
