The school district said construction on the new Susan Todd Pearson Middle School is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2021-22 school year.
The new school will relieve the student population at Griffin and Campbell middle schools, Smith said.
The middle school will cost about $37 million and construction will be funded with Special Purpose Local Option Sales Taxes. Under the contract approved by the board, Evergreen Construction will oversee the building project and will guarantee a maximum price for the work. Any additional cost will be paid by Evergreen Construction.
