TUOLUMNE CITY -- With last-minute notice, the Summerville Union High School District Board announced a special meeting to consider approving major components of proposed building projects today.
The meeting notice came at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, beating by 45 minutes the required posting time for today's special meeting, which will be at 5:30 p.m. at the Summerville High School Library, 17555 Tuolumne Road.
The board will first meet behind closed doors to consider a parent's complaint. The government code section cited in the agenda suggests the complaint is about an employee.
In an open session that normally begins at 6:30 p.m., the board will be asked to approve:
The basic service fee confirmation with BCA Architects
The civil engineering proposal from North Star Engineering Civil Design
The schematic design project scope
Listed as an information item is Consideration of ASA 001 for funding expert Corine Loskot Consulting and sports fields consultants Verde Designs.
No details were available with the agenda or posted online, and calls Wednesday evening to the district office went to voicemail.
The Summerville district, with just under 900 students, passed an $8 million school facilities bond in November. Measure H initially failed by two votes, but a recount identified two miscounts and it passed, 2,610 votes to 2,608.
The bond pledged voters a new art classroom and green energy upgrades, but authorizes scrapping renovation plans to build entirely new buildings if board members decide it would save money in the long run. Bond money could be used to create and equip school fields and athletic facilities for community use, according to required election filings.
