The Summerville Union High School District on Wednesday received approval of its multi-million-dollar stadium project from the state and may break ground in as early as a week.
Graduation will be held at the school's baseball field, and a contingency plan is being worked on for the possibility of construction impeding the football season, which is still undetermined.
Superintendent Robert Griffith announced at the board's regular meeting that he had just hours ago received a call from a project architect informing him that the Division of the State Architect - which must approve all school projects - gave the district's plans the OK.
The project is estimated to cost about $4 million and will be the district's first project funded by its $8 million Measure H passed in 2012.
State approval means no major reworking is necessary on the proposed field, track and snack shack renovation.
