Colfax School board will consider design schematics July 30 for upcoming construction at the high school and Jennings Elementary as the planning process continues after the $18.9 million bond passed in February.

The board, which was set to meet July 23, moved the meeting back a week to allow more time for District Business Manager Reece Jenkin and Superintendent Jerry Pugh to prepare the 2018-19 district budget. It requires board approval to be sent to the state by the end of the month.

On the construction planning, school staff gave input on schematics – drawings that determine where each item will be in the new layout, such as science classrooms and counselors' offices – on June 22, followed by more feedback at a public meeting June 26.

Ned Warnick, district architect from Design West in Pullman, will present the revised layouts to the board.

If the board approves, design development will proceed in more detail, including breaking down construction costs.

Pugh said he expects some classrooms to change locations.

As part of the planning process, he meets every two weeks with a construction committee made up of Pugh, district consultant Dax Logson and Dan Gordon, construction project manager.

“We're on schedule with the planning phase. Things are progressing fine,” said Pugh.

Colfax Superintendent Jerry Pugh was named the 2017-18 NE 2B league Administrator of the Year. He was presented with a plaque by Colfax Athletic Director Nathan Holbrook on the last day of school.
