Progress on the new JCHS continues as a new school year approaches. Proposals were received for the new high school building and athletics complex on Friday, July 19, 2019.
Because of industry price escalations, the high school project came in above expectations. District partners at Hutton Construction and SJCF Architecture are working with the District in evaluating changes in scope to manage it back to the budget.
The District set aside monies to cover contingencies and will be able to continue with the project without a mill levy increase.
The Board of Education will review and approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price for concrete, steel, and underground plumbing work during its regularly scheduled August 5, 2019 meeting. Board of Education meetings are live-streamed to the USD 475 Facebook and then uploaded to YouTube the following day.
