SOUTH PORTLAND —  A pep rally in support of the South Portland High School renovation and construction project will be held Saturday.

The rally is organized by Renew SPHS, a political action committee that is advocating for the project and the $41.5 million borrowing proposal on the November ballot. 

The rally will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Beal Gym at South Portland High School. The rally coincides with homecoming weekend.

Organizers say the event will be an opportunity to discuss the school’s needs and demonstrate community support for the referendum. Attendees will be able to tour the school, review construction plans and sign up for volunteer activities.

Supporters of the bond proposal cite the school’s warning status from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges due to lack of compliance with life and safety codes, inaccessibility for the disabled, problems with the heating system and ventilation, among other issues. Supporters also say the school’s condition affects property values in the city.

The November bond proposal is the second in three years. In 2007, voters rejected a $56 million borrowing plan by a margin of 3-1. The current high school proposal has been scaled back since then.
