    Construction is now underway for the Modernization of Grant High School. Construction crews are working on abatement of materials in the historic buildings and those structures that will be demolished to make way for new facilities.  The Grant staff and teachers have taken up residence in the former Marshall High Campus that will serve as Grant's temporary home for the next two years. Transportation systems are now in place to help students reach the Marshall campus once school starts on August 30th. For more information please consult this tranportation to Marshall FAQ and this new interactive map shows the transportation options for reaching Marshall.
