8) Presentation by Brewer Construction Management and The Stacy Group on the High School Project.
The school board was not pleased with the results of the May 22nd CHS Improvements bids received ... nor the lack of written details presented at this board meet by The Stacy Group and Brewer Construction. More details below ...but the bottomline is the received bids were roughly $2 million higher than estimated and construction start will be delayed at least a month for a rebid with a scaled back project to stay within the approved bond budget. In contrast, the status report for the new upper elementary project had things going well with 1/3 of slab poured and some steel aready going up,.

The number of bidders (May 22nd above) for the high school project was significantly lower than the crowd at the (Feb. 6th) upper elementary bid opening.

Mike Stacy & Chad Brewer were still trying to explain details at the table with board members after a lengthy discussion. Some of the proposed changes for a rebid of the high school improvements project include less square feet in the kitchen and locker room areas, deferred drainage and existing roof interface issues, replan of MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) upgrades and interfaces with existing systems, seating only one side of practice gym, switch to rollout seating in old gym with less storage space underneath but more floor space for sports and portable stage when retracted. The new proposal would have 1800 sq ft (down from 2700) but no fewer classrooms. And the new simplified bids would hopefully be within the ~$5.4 milion anticipated the first go-round (instead of the ~$7.4 million in bids just received) -- Ted Wright

9) Discussion and Vote to Approve Changes of the District Board of Education Policy Book. -- Tabled without discussion
10) Discussion and Vote to Join or Not Join OSSBA for the 2014-2015 School Year. -- Approved
