District 2155's school board paved the way for a new school Monday night by approving a contract with Kraus-Anderson for $1,276,521 at Monday's board meeting. Under the agreement, the general contracting company will hire all sub-contractors for the job of replacing the senior high-middle school building which was destroyed in the June 17 tornado. The district has no official settlement with their insurance carrier, the Riverport Insurance Group, but negotiations are in progress.
