Our school district is currently collaborating with the Florida Department of Education to prepare an application for special facility funding to build a new DeSoto High School. During this initial application phase, we want to capture community input on the design priorities for a new DeSoto High School. We are committed to finalizing a plan that addresses our students' needs and reflects our community's priorities.
