“We’re excited to welcome in over 4,000 students to our school district for the first time in history,” said John Hamstra, superintendent for Southwest Local School District.

The School District has installed 10 modular classrooms to accommodate growth but is also planning for more than 1,000 new homes expected to be built within the next five years. Listen to this Chamber Spotlight to hear the superintendent’s information about a bond issue to fund new schools and renovations on the November ballot.
