Opening dates for three Marysville alternative schools have been pushed back at least two months because of design and permit delays.
Arts and Technology High School, scheduled to open for the start of the school year, is now expected to open Nov. 17. Tulalip Heritage School will open Nov. 27 and 10th Street School on Dec. 31.
A backlog in permit applications at the county meant the school district couldn’t proceed with roads, foundations and utilities for its new secondary campus until July 9. The schools will be assembled from modular, pre-built classrooms and trucked to a site south of Quil Ceda Elementary School on the Tulalip Reservation.
