FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- As students get ready for school to start, Homestead High School officials announced a massive project toward enhancing the campus.
It's a $169 million project, and officials say it's needed for a school that isn't fit for its current student body.

"We're trying to make sure we're preparing the district to face challenges of the next 50 years," says Southwest Allen County Schools Board President Tom Rhoades.
The new structure of the campus will bring in a new auditorium, music center, and "collaborative workspaces for teachers and students."
"We'll be much safer to create a safe and secure space for students and staff, and to parents, that's one of the most important factors," says Rhoades.
