November 16, 2017
School Board considered the Steering Committee recommendation and accepted this motion: "To approve the following non-binding construction goals for the project at Loganville-Springfield ES. The construction goals are as follows:  At least (an) 80,000 square-foot program with minimal student disruption/displacement, by maximizing the site for future expansion, with either a new construction or a hybrid scheme of upgrades and new construction, and a $24 million project cost estimate cap that optimizes the location of the building on the site with a goal towards meeting the $20 million original conceptual target.  In approving this motion, the board recognizes circumstances beyond its control may deviate from the above goals, however such goals are to provide the architect with the necessary guideposts moving forward.”
