INMAN – The USD 448 Board of Education plans to ask Schwab-Eaton representatives if the district could get the needed improvements to its track and football, baseball and softball fields. The outdoor athletic facilities would all remain in their current locations and have a $5 million price tag for the work.

Board members reached a consensus to go that direction during their meeting Monday, Nov. 20, at the central office.

“I don’t know if it’s even possible,” Board President Janell Harman said. “I need to see if it’s doable.”

Harman said board members might need to plan for a special meeting if architects from Schwab-Eaton determine that the amount of work proposed can not be done with that amount of money.
