The Hopkinsville-Christian County school district is actively working towards the consolidation of its schools and is set to provide a comprehensive update on the progress of this effort at the upcoming “State of the Schools” Eye-Opener Breakfast. The update will include key details on the progress of construction designs, which are expected to be completed within the next month. Additionally, the plans will incorporate cost-saving measures and new methods for bidding, which will differ from those used in the past.
Superintendent Bentzel acknowledged that the high bids received in July of last year were an error, and the district has taken steps to rectify this in the current plans. A firm timeline for the bidding process, with the hopes of being out to bid in the next three-to-four months, will also be further discussed at the breakfast.
The consolidation of Christian County and Hopkinsville high schools is not just about the creation of a new, comprehensive building for all to share. It is also about actively transforming education opportunities for local youths. The new facilities and resources that will be made available as a result of the consolidation will provide students with access to a wider range of educational opportunities, allowing them to reach their full potential.
The “State of the Schools” Eye-Opener Breakfast is scheduled for 7:30-9 AM on Tuesday, January 31 at the Bruce Convention Center in Hopkinsville. It is $15 per person or $135 per table, and tickets can be purchased through the Christian County Chamber of Commerce or the Christian County Public Schools home office. The event is open to the public and is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the consolidation efforts, ask questions, and provide feedback to the district officials
