SMCISD board to consider architectural services for district administrative office project

Sunday, September 19, 2021

The San Marcos Consolidated ISD Board of Trustees will consider approving architectural services for a central office during its regular meeting Monday.

SMCISD’s administration alongside the board’s subcommittee for central office issued a request for qualifications and accepted qualifications for the possible district administrative office project on Feb. 26. The request for qualifications included two phases: assessment and plans, and a possible second phase to include design and a construction project. The subcommittee independently evaluated and ranked 17 qualifications submissions and took its advisory ranking to the board, On May 17, the board chose Stantec Architecture Inc. as the most highly qualified firm for the project.

SMCISD administrators relocated in late 2017 to a temporary central office location at 631 Mill St. after mold was found in the previous office.

During Monday’s meeting, the board will consider approving a contract with Stantec Architecture Inc. for the district administrative office project.

In other business, the trustees will consider three different resolutions to nominate candidates to the Board of Directors of the Caldwell County Appraisal District, the Board of Directors of the Guadalupe County Appraisal District and the Board of Directors to Hays County Appraisal District.

The trustees will also consider taking possible action regarding Bonham Pre-Kindergarten tuition. During its March meeting, the board approved a tuition rate for Bonham Pre-Kindergarten at $390 a month for the district’s paid program, and that the administration establish a lottery system for any overflow applications.

The board will also hold a discussion regarding financial obligations of students for school activities, including trips. The trustees will discuss and take possible action regarding a chief medical officer and will also discuss, and take possible action regarding a board communications committee.
