The district is currently reconciling the Design Development cost estimate with the Project Budget. We are also currently working on the Construction Documents.

The GMP is projected to be submitted to the District in January 2024. Construction is projected to start in March 2024 and is to be projected to be completed in January 2026.
In September, our architect submitted Design Development documents to Ruscilli Construction for cost estimating. Public meetings began with the City of Worthington Architectural Review Board last week (October 12). Construction Documents are expected to be bid on in December 2023.

Turf Fields / Lacrosse Walls
Despite a pending punch list, TWHS students have begun using the turf field. The lighting system has been calibrated, and staff have been trained on the system. Final grading has occurred, and grass has been planted in the area. The TWHS lacrosse wall has been poured, and the final finish is occurring.
WKHS turf will be completed by the end of October. Challenges with soil conditions delayed this project further than anticipated. The lacrosse wall has been poured, and final grading will soon be complete.
Master Facilities Plan Phase 3
Assistant Superintendent Randy Banks will visit a PTA meeting at each elementary school this fall to update parents on the upcoming Phase 3 process. The presentation will include a brief review of Phases 1 and 2 and a discussion on possible factors for the third community task force to consider.
Two of these factors are enrollment and condition. The district plans to get updated enrollment projections in 2024 and has contacted an architect to reassess the elementary facilities after the first of the year.
