MVTHS awards three bids


The current plan for the new school’s construction does not include a theater or football field in the base bid amount.

However, these items have been designated as alternates and will be returned to the plans if sufficient funding is available after rebidding.

Also on Tuesday, FGM officials presented the MVTHS Board with information on their timeline for the redesign.

Smith asked FGM to come back with more detailed information regarding “specific performance benchmarks as to what’s going to be accomplished.”

MVTHS Board member Ben Mitchell warned FGM officials that the timing of this project has become crucial.

“When we lock into a time, we’ve got to live with it,” Mitchell said.

Other MVTHS Board actions Tuesday included:

n Hearing of a detailed mid-year progress report from MVTHS administrators.

n Approval of the employment of Bobbie Lane as an HOSA teacher for the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year.

n Approval of an employee resignation agreement. School board officials did not reveal the identity of the employee resigning.

n Hearing of comments from a local parent, who spoke of a student having trouble with bullying at MVTHS.
