Work will begin soon on a major renovation and addition at Moline High School. Tuesday afternoon a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the Bartlett Performing Arts Center.

Thanks to the local option sales tax, the Moline School District has some money to spend on renovations. Monday night the board of education approved projects totaling more than 22 million dollars.

The move to a new building is going smoother than expected for some Moline children and their teachers displaced by a fire. That's the opinion of Moline Superintendent Lanty McGuire, two days after transferring 270 students and 20 staff from Franklin Elementary to the former WIU building on 60th Street.
