Halifax County School Board continues high school discussions tonight / June 10, 2019
The Halifax County School Board will meet tonight in Halifax with a focus once again on building a replacement facility for Halifax County High School.

Trustees are expected to go over procedures for school construction under the Public-Private Education and Infrastructure Act of 2002, a state law that allows architects and general contractors to work together to streamline the design and building process. Last week, a facility review committee advising the School Board received a PPEA proposal for a new HCHS facility from Branch Builds of Roanoke, the firm that renovated Halifax County Middle School a decade ago.

Superintendent of Schools Mark Lineburg said last week that he planned to go over the details of PPEA procurement with school trustees at tonight’s meeting. However, before trustees approve any proposal, they must allow a 45-day period for other architectural firms vying for the job to submit competing offers.

Branch Builds is partnering with RRMM Architects on its plan. RRMA is one of three firms that made the final cut for a design of a new HCHS; the other candidates are Moseley Architects and Grimm & Parker, also based in Virginia.

Tonight’s School Board meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Bethune Office Complex in Halifax.

Also on tonight’s agenda:

» Trustees will consider revisions to the Code of Student Conduct and parental notifications;

» Review the options for audit services of school activity funds;

» Hear an analysis by finance director Robert Aylor on the advantages of lease financing and outright purchase of school buses.
