Boone Central seeks proposals on middle school

Boone Central Public Schools is announcing this week that proposals from design-builders will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Thursday March 19, for the planned middle school addition project at Albion.
The addition will be about 16,000 square feet, housing middle school classrooms, a K-8 Media Center, middle school administrative offices and support spaces. The approximate project budget is $3,750,000.
The addition will be placed in the current playground area. The playground will be relocated north of the existing school where the closing of Priarie Street is anticipated.
The former Masonic Lodge building north of Prairie Street would be remodeled with a preschool classroom addition. Minor remodel within the existing school building is anticipated to accommodate the middle school addition.
