Belton ISD Advances Fine Arts Additions at Belton High School
During a special board meeting, trustees authorized a construction contract for the BHS Orchestra Addition Project. This project includes the addition of 3,200 square feet for a dedicated orchestra rehearsal hall, sectional room and three practice rooms, along with renovations to 1,200 square feet of existing band hall, instructor office space and the band music library.
When Belton Middle School was repurposed to a ninth-grade center in the fall of 2014, the BHS orchestra program began to use the band hall there. With the opening of Lake Belton High School in the fall of 2020, orchestra will no longer have a designated instructional space at BHS.
The district plans to break ground on the project as soon as contracts are executed to ensure availability for the fall of 2020 when orchestra will be relocated to the main campus.
