SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Public school leaders in Sioux Falls have broken ground for a $10.9 million school for Spanish immersion students.

The district’s growing Spanish immersion program serves more than 400 elementary school-age students. It currently operates out of two elementary schools.

The new school is being built on the site of an old elementary school. It’s slated to open in the fall of 2016.

Funding for the school was jeopardized earlier this year when state lawmakers proposed limits on school property taxes dedicated to capital projects. Legislators couldn’t agree on the terms of the proposal, and the measure failed.
