The Bozeman School Board is expected to approve the architecture and general construction contracts for its 8th elementary school.
"We're able to approve the architects contract as well as the general construction contractor manager for the meeting. These are things that we've had in the works for about five months or so and with the passage of the school election we're able to put some finality to that so that we can get going," said Kirk Miller, Bozeman Schools Superintendent.
Voters approved a $26 million bond last week, most of which would pay for the purchase of the land and construction of the building.
The new elementary school will be located on 43 acres of land off Durston and Flanders Mill Roads. Construction is set to begin some time in mid-June and the school is scheduled to be opened in August of 2014.
The 65,000 square feet building will be able to handle just over 500 students in 24 classrooms.
