Bidding on expansion may be soon


JACKSONVILLE — Make room for the youngsters, or at least, the younger students at Jacksonville High School.

An estimated $1.4 million planned expansion at Jacksonville High, which includes seven additional classrooms, could be bid as soon as this December, according to Eric Mackey, superintendent of Jacksonville City Schools.

The expansion also will include additional restrooms.

Mackey and board of education members will meet at 6:30 p.m. today to discuss the project during a scheduled board meeting at the high school library.

Six of the seven classrooms will be designated for seventh-graders, he said, with the seventh classroom set aside for special-education instruction.

The project was approved by the board in September as part of a five-year capital plan, which includes seven projects prioritized according to need.

Approval is still pending on the final drawings; it also has yet to be approved by the planning and building commission.
