Ribbon cutting at Crestview High School for the new 8 classroom addition (OCSD)

Okaloosa County School District officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony last Tuesday to open eight new classrooms at Crestview High School.

  • The addition was one of several construction projects underway at the school thanks to a 10-year half-cent sales tax for facilities that voters approved in 2020.

“There are so many construction projects occurring all throughout the school district, and I’m so excited that there are still so many projects to come,” Superintendent Marcus Chambers said at the event.

Over a year ago, several projects started at Crestview High School to include a cafeteria expansion, roofing projects, new bathrooms, parking additions, and a multipurpose building that is nearing completion.

Principal Vicky Hayden led tours of the new classrooms, which feature updated technology and furnishings.

  • The half-cent sales tax program is funding infrastructure upgrades and renovations at schools across the district as well as plans for new school construction over the next seven years.

School Board Member Tim Bryant and other local dignitaries attended the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“I could not be more appreciative to the citizens of Okaloosa County for making these improvements possible,” Chambers said.
