Sidon Irrigation District 1 board looks forward to tour of new 6-12 school BY BRAD DEVEREAUX The Rocky Mountain 6-12 School went up fast last spring and is now be- ing completed, hidden from spectators as contractors work on the interior de- tails. Members of the District One board will take a tour of the facility on Thurs- day, April 8, at 6 p.m., with an executive session at 7 p.m. followed by the regu- lar April board meeting at 8 p.m. They scheduled the tour at the March board meeting Thursday, March 11, in Cowley. Facilities Director Mi- chael Simmons reported to the board about the prog- ress of the 6-12 project at Thursday's meeting. The interior continues to look more and more complete: Simmons said, as addition- al case work is installed, walls are painted, floors are polished, window and door frames are installed and tile is set. He said electricians and mechanical operators continue to rough in, set art sinks, insulate pipe, set dust filter piping, in- stall classroom returns, fit equipment in the main me- chanical room, prepare for permanent power and in- stall permanent lighting fixtures. EB Berger recent- ly arrived on the site to be- gin the application of resin- ous flooring, Simmons said. The 6-12 project has in- cluded six change orders, increasing the cost by a to- tal of $77,598. Changes in- clude replacing the remain- der of the aged clay tile drain beneath the future parking lot, revising the ir- rigation system at athletic fields, changes in flooring, and changes in door hard- ware to keypad operation. Groathouse Construc- tion has also utilized their allowance of $186,013 worth of design develop- ment or project enhance- ments, Simmons said. The total changes in both categories equal less than 1.3 percent of the orig- inal contract value, Sim- mons said. Simmons said asbestos abatement has been fin- ished up at the former Big Horn Academy, which will become the new district ad- ministration offices. The district is awaiting approv- al of the abatement. The board spent time talking about leadership governance training that they are currently going through. They discussed the district mission and ex- pectations, which are still in draft form. They plan to have the documents fi- nalized by the April board meeting, Hocker said. The three board ex- pectations focus on profi- cient reading in grades 3-8, eighth-grade students be- ing offered a chance to pass algebra and ACT scores, Hocker said.
