Christian County School Board to consider contracts with construction manager, architect for new high school

The Christian County School Board will consider approving contracts with a construction manager and architect for the high school consolidation project when it meets Thursday night.

Superintendent Chris Bentzel says not much is changing with the agreement with Hafer Architect, but the district could formalize a contract with Alliance Corporation to serve as the construction manager in hopes of finding ways to reduce costs.

Bentzel says the goal remains finding ways to cut costs from the $200 million bids that came in last month.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School Principal Carrie Caples will also give an update on that school’s improvement plan at the meeting set for 6 p.m. Thursday at the Board of Education on Glass Avenue.
