The Okaloosa County Commission will issue up to $14 million in tax-exempt bonds in support of Destin High School after a unanimous vote.
Deputy County Administrator of Operations Craig Coffey said the funds will be used to develop a 25,500-square-foot, multi-story building with more classrooms, offices, fixtures, equipment, furnishings and other facilities.
“Destin High School currently has 475 students enrolled for the 2022-23 school year in addition to a waiting list,” Coffey wrote in a memo.
Coffey said the school is expected to have up to 800 students in grades 9-12 when the project is completed.
