The Fowler district scheduled an open house Wednesday at what's called a tornado-resistant monolithic dome. The steel-reinforced,
concrete building will house a computer lab, band room, gym and locker rooms - and serve as a community disaster shelter.
Fowler is located about 50 miles southwest of Greensburg - the Kansas town that was flattened on May 4, 2007, by an EF5 tornado that killed 13 people.
Fowler voters approved a $1.94 million bond issue in 2008 to fund the dome's construction. The project also received a $345,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
