LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe School Corporation is using some of its $94 million bond project to upgrade McCutcheon High School.

A bond was approved Wednesday to move forward with the renovations.

Twenty-eight million dollars is being spent on improving safety and updating the auditorium, science labs and swimming pool.

The whole bond project is a long time coming for TSC.

Superintendent Dr. Hanback said it was used for Harrison, Battle Ground and McCutcheon.

He's thankful the vision is finally coming to fruition.

"It's much needed renovations," said Dr. Hanback. "It is going to bring out facilities in the standards we expect to really function in the education environment that we want to."

McCutcheon last saw renovations in 2010, but its last major upgrade to this magnitude was in 2003.

Dr. Hanback says a construction schedule should be released soon.
