Windsor Re-4 School Board approves bond contracts and parameters
November 15, 2016
The Windsor-Severance school board approved the parameters of the voter approved bond measures 3B and 3C on Monday.
At the monthly school board meeting, the board approved the bond parameters including the contracts for Windsor High School surveying and the contract for the building of a second high school in Severance, which will take $55 million of the bond's $104.8 million.
The Denver-based engineering and architectural firm, the DLR group and RLH Engineering firm were officially approved for hire by the board to construct the new high school, make changes and updates to Windsor High School as well as make capital improvements to schools across the district.
The timeline of construction and improvements across the district will be examined and released later this week at weldre4.org/bond.
At the meeting, the board also announced the formation of a bond oversight committee, which will monitor and advise the district in its use of the bond funds.
"It essentially will be a fairly unbiased third party that makes sure we do everything we promised the community we would," said Superintendent Dan Seegmiller.

The committee is separate from the district's design advisory committees, which focus on building architecture and programming.
Officials projected the new high school will open in 2019, and improvements and construction projects will begin shortly next year.
The committee is set to meet for the first time in April 2017.
