Bluff Dale School Ribbon Cutting

The Empire-Tribune reports Bluff Dale schools held a grand opening– with a ribbon cutting of dollar bills– for their new secondary school this week. Speakers included superintendent John Taylor and school board vice president Jerry Campbell. In 2016, Bluff Dale ISDs school board was told that if they didn’t get more students, they would have to close the school. Campbell said they couldn’t watch the community become a ghost town.
They were allotted $300,000 to open a high school and held classrooms in portable buildings as student enrollment grew to 238. The school board knew they needed another building to house all of the new students.
