The Graham Independent School District Board has narrowed down its addition and renovation options for Graham Junior High School.
Three alternate options were presented to the board by Tim McClure of Huckabee Architecture, the same company that designed Graham High School's renovation plan. The base bid includes the addition of six classrooms and an enclosure for the walkway to the annex area. The first alternate includes the base bid and two additional classrooms, and alternate two includes the base bid, alternate one and the renovation of administrative offices.
The third option includes the base, alternates one and two, and the addition of two more restrooms to be renovated and a library multi-purpose room. The GISD board decided to go with Big Sky Contracting out of Dallas, with whom a $1.58 million contract was set up.
The classroom additions will replace two of the portable buildings on the east side of the school. The board scrapped the third option, stating that the library multi-purpose room and additional two classrooms would cost more than $350,000 to construct.
