A steering committee made up of community members researched several possibilities over a several month period. Their recommendation for the best option for Geary County Schools students was to build a new high school on a new property. According to building estimates based on square footage, a cap of $105 million was created to allow a future design team the ability to build a new school that meets student needs and doesn’t adversely affect the taxpayer.
$105 million is a “do not exceed” amount and the district realizes that it may be possible to build a new high school for less. The Geary County Schools Board of Education will have the ultimate oversight over the project and its cost.
