QSD Construction projects next steps 

I have been getting a lot of questions from staff about the next steps with the QSD construction projects now that the bond has passed so I thought I would send an all staff email to let folks know what’s next.

The first step in our process is to hire an architectural firm and we are screening and interviewing next week for that.  Tom Harris has put together a team of district staff, parents, teachers and students to be part of the hiring team.  After we hire and architect, they can begin helping to determine more specific timelines and schedules for the projects.   Then, we can begin pulling together teams at each school to plan the projects.  At the March 22nd QSD School Board Meeting we are holding a work session on bond financing to outline the process of issuing bonds to finance the projects.  Sometime in April we will begin the process for hiring a project management firm to manage the projects on site.   

The following schedules are preliminary and tentative (for rough approximation only):
