School board to meet Monday
SALISBURY — The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education will hold a called meeting Monday to discuss the new western elementary school.
According to the board’s agenda, the 4 p.m. meeting will be to review an agreement with Barnhill Construction for construction manager at risk.
The 101,696 square foot building is scheduled to be built off Mimosa Street in Cleveland, directly behind the current Cleveland Elementary School building. When completed, the new elementary school will replace Cleveland and Woodleaf elementaries.
Agenda documents also lay out the school board’s lease agreement with the county. The Rowan County Board of Commissioners has agreed to finance $27.5 million of the cost of the school.
The school board will enter a two-year lease agreement with the county beginning Aug. 3, according to documents, and the county will assume ownership of the Cleveland property. The total lease amount for the term is $100.
The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education will meet Monday at 4 p.m. in the Wallace Educational Forum board room, 500 N. Main St.
