Update as of May 10, 2019:
At the September 17, 2018 Voting Session, the Hopewell Area Board of School Directors retained the services of VEBH architects to conduct a Feasibility Study of all District facilities. The intention of the District was to engage in a feasibility study in order to provide an evaluation of the needs of the District’s five buildings. Further, VEBH would provide recommendations to the Board and Administration on the physical plant needs of the District now and in future years.
The study commenced in November of 2018 with the projected completion of the study expected in summer 2019. The feasibility study has the following four phases:
Phase 1: Establish existing physical building and site conditions and prioritize upgrades
Phase 2: Develop associated costs to address building deficiencies or needs
Phase 3: Establish educational programming needs at each building
Phase 4: Create Options for the Board to consider
On March 26, 2019, VEBH presented Phase 1 to the Hopewell Area Board of School Directors. The District’s Administration and Buildings and Grounds Committee is currently working with VEBH to continue Phase 2 and begin Phase 3 of the feasibility study. Periodically, VEBH will present information to the Hopewell Area Board of School Directors during public meetings at the completion of each phase.
