The Bedford County School Board is set to vote tonight on advertising for construction management firms for the building of a new middle school.
The board recently voted to buy roughly 50 acres adjacent to Liberty High School for a new school to serve up to 800 students. The board will vote to advertise a Request for Proposal period for firms to submit offers by early November.
The advertisement lists the estimated price of the new school at $30 million to $50 million, but an official cost has not been determined. The school is projected to open in August 2016 and will be the county's largest project since the Jefferson Forest High School renovation in 2008.
The school, driven by Bedford's reversion to a town this summer, will serve students in the Liberty attendance zone, which includes the town and surrounding areas.
Also tonight, the board will discuss projects to designate in the capital improvement plan.
