With the high school's enrollment at capacity and growth projected at 2 percent a year, voters on Tuesday, May 2 will consider extending existing bond debt to fund an expansion. The eight-year extension would result in no extra cost to taxpayers. "We are out of room at the high school," Superintendent Dan Takens said of the facility at 8500 Burlingame Ave. SW, which was built in 1998. As Principal Scott Joseph put it, "Every classroom is used all the time"
