CES to get new classrooms

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Students at Chiefland Elementary will have something to crow about as construction on eight new classrooms is set to begin in October.

The Levy County School Board discussed the construction plans at their meeting this week, announcing the additions will replace Chiefland Elementary's 20-year-old portables.

Four classrooms will be for intermediate grades and four for primary grades. Joyce Bullock Elementary and also Cedar Key Elementary will see some improvements as well.

Just over $2 million is allotted for the projects from Classrooms for Kids. The board discussed which projects to pursue first and a motion was made to focus on building classrooms.

"Let's build all the classrooms we can build, pursue that first and see if it's feasible," said Frank Etheridge, school board member.

A design build method was also adopted with a motion to hire a construction manager to oversee building design along with the construction aspect. The design build method was chosen to save both time and money.

The Board also discussed bids for roofing prices and hope to enter into a contract with a local company within seven days.
