The new school will accommodate up to 1,000 students in grades K-5, and help alleviate current over-crowding in several existing elementary schools. The 117,000 sq. ft. facility will incorporate two stories and sit on approximately 19 acres.
Bids will be opened at the Robertson County Schools Central Office on April 10 in accordance with the published advertisement as per the bid instructions. Plans for the new school have already been submitted to the State Fire Marshal’s Office for review.
A formal request for funds from the Robertson County Commission will be made at the commission’s regular-scheduled April 21, meeting. Once funding is approved a contract will be awarded and construction can begin.
According to RCS Director Mike Davis, groundbreaking is planned for early May, and construction is estimated to take approximately 15 months. Current plans are for the building to be open for classes in the fall of 2015 for the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.
