Superintendent Ike Haynes feels misunderstood when it comes to his proposed plans for consolidating the public schools in Jeff Davis County.
At a special-called meeting of the School Board of Directors on Thursday, Haynes presented an architectural plan of a feasible consolidation alternative.
“I’ve heard that people are saying we can’t spend $60 million on new schools when our tax base is only $80 million,” said Haynes. “That dollar amount was if we build all new schools for K-12, which is not the plan.”
In March 2012, the consulting firm, Volkert, Inc. presented their finding from reviewing building conditions for the five campuses of the Jeff Davis County school system. Their estimation to build all new educational and sports facilities for all students would cost in the range of $60 million.
“I want the facts known,” said Haynes, “We will make the buildings currently on high school campuses K-8 sites and move high school students to a new school built in Carson.”
In the map below which depicts the area in Carson around the current Career Center, the district currently owns the land below the “Existing Property Line” and has plans to purchase the land located above that line and across Vo-Tech Road.
Haynes estimates the cost of building only the most necessary buildings for high school students would cost approximately $23 million. “We obviously won’t worry about a football field right away,” said Haynes.
