The Satsuma school system is looking to improve its athletic facilities. The school board has plans to build a new football stadium and renovate the field house, track, and tennis courts. The plans will be revealed at a public meeting on Sunday, July 20th at 2:30 PM at the Satsuma Community Center.
The Satsuma athletic program has changed dramatically since Saraland broke away from the Mobile County school system. Satsuma quickly followed suit and formed their own school system. These decisions greatly reduced the population of Satsuma High School, including the pool of student athletes the school enjoyed.
According to Al.com, the school board plans to move the field house as part of its renovations. The parking area will also be rearranged, and more spaces will be added.
Members of the Satsuma school board will be speaking at the meeting. School superintendent Dr. Joe Walters will also be speaking, as well as head football coach Scott Rials. The meeting will feature a question and answer session.
Sunday’s meeting will show the benefits Satsuma has in running its own school system. Thanks to local control, improvements to things like the athletic program can happen much more quickly. Satsuma High School is no longer just one of many in the much larger Mobile County school system.
