Opening in the fall of 2014 are two new permanent facilities for two schools: Mat-Su Day School and Valley Pathways, both special mission schools in the Mat-Su Borough School District. Shown here is Valley Pathways principal, Jim Wanser, with MSB Project Manager, Robert Scott. MSB and MSBSD School Board/Administration toured both sites.
