Kuna school district considers bold idea for professional-technical program

What started out as a discussion of what to do with the Old 4th Street Gym turned into a major proposal for a professional-technical program at Kuna High School.
Kuna schools Superintendent Jay Hummel, at Tuesday night’s school board meeting, laid out a bold initiative to build an addition onto the school district administrative office building at 711 E. Porter Ave. to accommodate new office space and classroom and lab space for a professional-technical education program.
The reason this is related to the Old 4th Street Gym is because the money to build the expansion could very well come from the sale of the historic building.
On Tuesday’s agenda, as promised, was an item to request permission to get an appraisal of the building and property, just to see what it might be worth.
School board members Tuesday night voted unanimously to seek an appraisal of the property.
