This comes after a bond was passed in May 2021, which gave the district authority to build two new elementary schools in the district and would be a first in the last 40 years.

The district is now set to break ground on the second school at 9:30 a.m. on May 18th at 800 E 11th Street.

The PBTISD Board of Trustees; Superintendent, Brent Jaco; Principal, Chad Blain; Assistant Principals; Teachers; Students;  VLK Architects; BTC Construction are all set to be in attendance.
