---- — The Zionsville Community Schools Board of School Trustees heard an update on the high school renovation plan at its Monday, Nov. 11, meeting. High school Principal Tim East began the presentation by explaining the school needs to be "right-sized" for future growth. He said the high school can handle about 2,100 students, and the student population is expected to reach 2,500 by 2025. "We started talking some time ago about reimagining Zionsville High School," he said East said Fanning Howey architects have helped with ideas to repurpose, reuse and rebuild to be as conservative as possible. For example, rather than build new space for the musical departments, the auxiliary gym will be repurposed for the vocal, orchestra and band departments. Then a multipurpose student activity space will be added for PE, student affiliation and community rental. Instructional space left open when the music departments move also will be repurposed.
