Today and Wednesday a team of community volunteers and school staff members in Bryan is working on the development of suggestions to help guide the Bryan school board in the project details of the new school construction.
Bryan City Schools Superintendent Diana Savage told the Bryan Times that approximately 50 people will serve on the committee. Half of those serving are community volunteers and the other half are school district staff members.
Also taking part in the planning session will be representatives of the architectural firm for the project, and representatives of the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.
The project involves construction of a new middle school-high school to house grades six to 12 at the current middle school site, renovating the middle school to house grades pre-K to five, and demolishing the Lincoln and Washington elementary schools and the high school.
The total for the project is $53.9 million, of which $18.9 million will be funded by the state.
