The missing cacophony of construction at Algoma School District buildings will be music to the ears of Superintendent Nick Cochart. Algoma School District is wrapping up construction at its elementary school and auditorium after delays pushed the $4.86 million project into winter. This project was preceded by another multi-million dollar project that improved the athletics and technical education facilities at the high school. With no other major construction projects on the horizon, Cochart says he and others can put even more focus on what makes Algoma great.
Cochart said the growing success of their Live Algoma Initiative, Pathfinder Academy, and cooperative technical program were also bright spots in 2016.
