FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Officials with Southwest Allen County Schools announced the future of the Homestead High School project Friday.

In a press conference, Superintendent Phil Downs stated that the plan for an almost completely new school will move forward. SACS had to wait a period of 30 days to give those living in the district the chance to push for a referendum to fund the project, but they chose not to.

Downs says the project start date is tentative. The cost of the project is estimated to be $169 million.
