Plans began early for the next parts of Marion High Schools South Campus. A total of $1,225,000 was appropriated for the building of a kitchen and cafeteria building and for the building of a vocational unit. Bids opened for both of these parts, along with a second academic unit, on October 10, 1962 ("$1.2 Million Approved For New School Unit" 1).
The second academic unit, or "Building Two," was under construction but not finished for the 1963-1964 school year. It would be opened for the 1964-1965 school year. At the same time, the North Campus would be closed for the 1964-1965 school year, and would become a junior high school. The new campus was finally becoming a complete school ("We Are All Proud Of Our Two-Campus School" 4).
