Work begins on new ag building at Dos Palos High

Los Banos EnterpriseNovember 4, 2013 

— The framework is being done at Dos Palos High School for a new ag building that will replace the one that burned down in 2009.

Classrooms and shop areas for agriculture, auto and wood shops plus a computer lab were burned.

All ag classrooms will be built in the first phase of the project, which is expected to be complete in June and open for the fall semester. The second phase will follow and include the wood shop and auto shop.

The new ag building will feature horseshoe-shaped bays on the inside, and the outside will replicate the gymnasium and its modern style.

Ruiz said students will have extra space for working on welding and other projects when the new building is complete.

The school, which has about 670 students, employs two ag teachers, one auto shop teacher and one wood shop teacher.

Ruiz said the cause of the Dec. 3, 2009 fire was never found.
