ALEXANDRIA, S.D. (AP) - The school district in Hanson will be adding new classrooms following the approval of a $2.6 million expansion.

The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/1OgMO5K ) reports the Hanson School Board has authorized the funding that will go toward the expansion of the middle and high school.

Superintendent Jim Bridge says the new classrooms will be for English, science and math classes and are expected to be ready by fall 2017. He says the school’s enrolment has increased by 125 over the past decade.

Data from the state Department of Education show Hanson has 419 students from kindergarten through 12th grade this year.

The district has added new elementary and library wings over the past five years.

The expansion at the middle and high school will be attached to the existing building.
