Supervisors, School Board to talk about PES renovations, intermediate school
Money matters will again be a topic on the next joint meeting between Board of Supervisors and the School Board, set for Nov. 30.
Both boards are planning to talk about the costs and the timing of going forward with two big-ticket projects wanted by the School Board.
The School Board decided last month to request the joint meeting agenda to center on two of their costly projects.
A discussion of a proposed $9.6 million renovation project for Potomac Elementary School will take place, along with talk about converting the mothballed former middle school building into an intermediate school starting in 2012-13.
Superintendent Candace Brown said it would take about $2,250,566 in 2012-13 for startup costs and operating the first-year of an intermediate school.
She also is estimating at least $1,351,703 for annual, recurring operating costs every year after that.
