At the high school, a meeting of the high school design committee was held to help prioritize various strategies to bring that project into budget.
All of the rest of the work is being done internally by staff. If a strategy is adopted, that may change the design at any particular school. Then the design committee at that school will be involved.
V. Review of Budget and Schedule Reports
Scott Peralta gave a concurrent review of the budget and schedule. At this point, all schedules have been modified to allow time for the budget reconciliation processes. It is hoped that once the budgets are reconciled, we will be able to make up the time being spent for this process. All estimated completion dates that were reflected in the distributed report will hopefully be amended and brought closer to the original completion dates as we move forward.
VI. General Discussion
There was general discussion among the committee members about the process that is taking place to resolve the budgets. Some concern was expressed at the Bellview Project that one of the strategies might be to narrow the hallway, and members of the Bellview Committee are concerned about that strategy.
Jeff Schlecht discussed the process being used at the high school and gave feedback from the design committee meeting that was held earlier in the afternoon.
VII. Schedule Next Meeting and Confirm Agenda
The next meeting was confirmed for Monday, December 3, at 7:00 p.m. in the District Board Room. A similar agenda will be used.
