The Board of School Directors Abandoned the High School Facilities Project at the May 21, 2007 Board Meeting
In their first regular board meeting since the public bid opening for the high school project produced bids roughly $17 million over the projected budget, the board evaluated and discussed the possibilities for next steps. Those scenarios ranged from accepting all bids and proceeding with the project to rejecting the bids and abandoning the project. Given the large cost overage, and reports from the professionals indicating that significantly reducing the budget was unlikely without considerable re-design, the board moved and voted 8-0to reject the bids and abandon the project.
