Scott County Schools administrators know they need a second high school. They just can’t afford it. Superintendent Patricia Putty said in an interview that the district has to look at what the immediate need is based on student capacity and the cost. A new high school will cost the district about $50 million. The new elementary school will cost the district roughly $13 million — at a time when the district’s state funding has declined more than $750,000 in the last four years.
