An ?IDEAL? Expansion

Year Funded




Johnston County Public Schools will expand its IDEAL Academy (an agricultural preparatory program in partnership with the University of Mount Olive located at South Johnston High School). This expansion will most notably include a new 50? x 60? building with an attached 10? x 60? shelter, a facility suitable for agricultural education and practice activities. Further, the project will enhance the existing program, offerings, and structures by allowing for safety and usability upgrades such as connecting an existing structure to the water and drainage system and allocating space to which the aquaculture tanks can be moved for future use.
