WDKN 1260 AM Country Gospel Talk Radio With $6 million in funding approved by the county commission, the Dickson County School Board has begun mapping out the stages for phases I and II of its facilities improvement plan. The Dickson County Commission gave final approval Monday night to a plan to borrow $6 million for the school system. Mayor Bob Rial said with a $1.6 million contribution from the school board, the county likely will be able to pay off the 20-year bond in as little as 10 years without needing any additional revenue from property taxes. Following that approval, school officials met with C&I Design Wednesday to begin planning the work to be done with the funds. Director of Schools Dr. Danny Weeks presented a tentative schedule for phases I and II to the school board Thursday night showing bids to be opened for the first phase on Jan. 6. The schedule presented to the board shows the first stage of safety and security upgrades to undergo a final drawing review around Dec. 15 with bids opened Jan. 6 and a contract presented at the board's Jan. 22 meeting. With a projected cost of $735,000, the proposal will include constructing secure entrances at several campuses, installing video security systems and other steps that were recommended by a special committee that began reviewing school safety following the Dec. 14, 2012, school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. The second phase begins with a Jan. 15 drawing review for renovations to more than 35 bathrooms across the system, with a bid opening Feb. 3 and a contract presented to the board Feb. 26. That project is estimated to cost $607,000. That is followed by a drawing review for mechanical upgrades at various schools on Feb. 1, with a bid opening set for Feb. 17 and a contract also presented at the February board meeting. The plan allocates $2 million for the HVAC projects, but Weeks said he is concerned that a major system upgrade at Dickson County High School might turn out to be extensive and have to be delayed as a separate project. On March 1 will be a final drawing review for the replacement of doors and windows to improve energy efficiency at several buildings, with a bid opening on March 19 and a contract presented at the board's March 27 meeting. That stage is estimated at $1,344,000. Two phases of roofing work at Dickson County High School and miscellaneous other projects remain to be scheduled. Weeks said the system is working with Jeff Corlew of C&I Design to plan the start of the various stages to hold down the impact on school operations. “We will be working with principals very carefully, and one thing we've stressed with Mr. Corlew is we know there will be some interruption of school and school days and things like that. But we've very clearly identified times that during testing times, during instructional time we don't need interruptions, so trying to minimize those as much as we possibly can, while teachers continue to teach, while we go through the testing season of late April, early May. And so he has told us we should not have trouble working around those,” Weeks said. The director said he anticipates being able to complete the projects in phases I and II by fall break 2015, with the exception of the mechanical upgrade at DCHS, which could take longer depending on how extensive it turns out to be.21.11.2014 at 03:39 pmLike
