The District 205 School Board heard from site architects and contractors that the majority of the High School renovation work should be wrapped up by the start of the next school year.
Lee Marbach with Russell Construction went over the plans with board members, which would see a majority of the renovation work completed between January and August of 2021.
“Part of developing the documents that are going to come to [the board] next month before going out to bid is having the contractors understand is when they’re getting to certain areas of the building and how that relates to staff and, potentially, students in the area, and working with the district,” Marbach told the board.
Board members also expressed satisfaction with how Lombard, King, and Steele have come along in the renovation work.
The board did take action in approving a solar panel purchase agreement for a small array that would be adjacent to Silas Willard.
Additionally, the board spent some time discussing the plans for the auditorium but not final plans were decided on. That decision will come later.
