Trustees View Proposed Price for Final Phase of Construction at OHS

ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

E.C.I.S.D. Trustees now have an idea of how much the final phase of construction at Odessa High School will cost the district.


The proposed Guaranteed Maximum Price for Odessa High School Phase V: Performing Arts Building is $7.896 million. This is $90,000 more than what had been in the budget for the project. 


The new building will feature a state-of-the-art performing arts center, as well as fine arts classroom spaces. It will be built at the front of the school, to the east of the current auditorium.


These changes come from a bond passed in 2012. Through the bond, E.C.I.S.D. has been able to make additions to both high schools, and add three new elementary schools.


According to Chief Operations Officer David Finley, the entire school bond project is now about $6.5 million over budget.
