PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) - Neshoba County school patrons will vote Aug. 11 on a $14 million school bond issue.

If approved by 60 percent of the voters, the district will build a new Neshoba Central High School and renovate the other buildings. The work is expected to be completed by January 2017.

Schools Superintendent Tommy Dearing says an emergency was declared last year over the deteriorating 50-year-old Neshoba Central High School building.

The project will be done in four stages. First will be the new high school followed with a new football stadium, bus turnaround and parking lot.

The third and fourth stages are renovations to the elementary-middle school and some of the old high school buildings, which would bring them up to code.

The total cost of the school projects is $24.3 million.
