KCS, Concord school boards to discuss Head Start grant, construction contracts

KANNAPOLIS — The Kannapolis City Schools’ Board of Education will consider the approval of a Head Start grant and look at bids for school nutrition equipment Monday. The board will meet at 5 p.m. for closed session and resume with an open session at 6 p.m. in the central office board room located at 100 Denver Street, Kannapolis.

CONCORD — The Cabarrus County Board of Education will consider the approval of two construction contracts for new facilities Monday. First, the board will consider a contract with Leitner Construction Co. for the construction of a new Mt. Pleasant Middle School building to replace the current facility. With six alternates, Leitner’s contract stands at $28.7 million. The new middle school will be constructed on Walker Road, next to the current high school site.

A contract for a replacement facility for Royal Oaks Elementary will also be considered. The lowest bid, received Dec. 3, was submitted by Edison Foard, Inc. at a total of $19 million. The board previously approved the site package at $2.1 million pending county funding. The funding is being made available, therefore, this approval would be for the total less the $2.1 million, or a total of $16.8 million.

The board will also:

  • Consider a lease agreement with Bethel United Methodist Church to create a new community garden located next to Bethel Elementary School.
  • Approve a change order to purchase contract to have Rose Office machines complete installation of New Early College, located at the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College School of Technology.
  • Consider placing a sign at the baseball field shelter at Cox Mill Elementary School, in honor of Elijah Aschbrenner, a student who passed away in November 2015.
  • Look at an easement agreement between Rocky River Crossing LLC and the Board of Education along Highway 73 at the cost of $1.
