MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The South Prairie School District south of Minot has started construction on a $12 million high school.

Voters in the K-8 district late last year overwhelmingly approved a bond measure to pay for the addition. Ground was broken for the project on Thursday and dirt work is to begin next week.

Superintendent Wayne Stanley says student numbers in the district have nearly doubled in the last half dozen years. School board members determined it would be more cost-effective to build a high school than to continue to pay tuition to send students to other area schools.

The 48,000-square-foot high school should be ready for the 2015-16 school year.
