The federal government will contribute $345,000 to the construction of a new school building in Southwest Kansas.
The contribution will go towards Fowler's $1.9 million multipurpose building. Voters approved the bond issue last November. It's not your ordinary building. Rather, it's a monolithic dome, which is cheaper to build and extremely energy efficient.
That's one reason why the grant was provided to the Fowler school district. The dome is expected to open by the end of 2010.
