INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -
District residents and alumni now have an opportunity to watch real-time construction progress of the new Independence Junior-Senior High School building.
The district has launched two webcams streaming live footage from the construction site. You can view the video here.
The live streams will allow visitors to check in on the progress of the project at their leisure and offer a way to keep up to date if they are not in close proximity.
"The cameras are an excellent way for us to share this exciting time in our district with former students, residents, and prospective students," said Superintendent Jean Peterson. "We are so proud of the communities of Brandon, Independence, and Rowley and want to share this progress as much as possible. It gives prospective families and businesses a firsthand look at the growth taking place in the Independence area."
The purchase of the cameras and the live stream service was made possible by business sponsors located on the web pages next to the footage. The district will provide the live feed for the entire duration of the project, and it may possibly reposition the two cameras to show interior shots once the project is further along.
Upon completion of the project, the cameras will be used as part of the building's security surveillance.
