In this season of joy and hope we are grateful to all of those in Custer County that have supported our efforts to improve and provide the highest quality educational opportunities for our students and their families.
In passing the bond to match the BEST grant we have begun the process of selecting our construction team. NV5 of Denver went through a rigorous selection process and was awarded the contract as the Owner's Representative and will be sending out RFPs (Request for Proposals) shortly to bring both a general contractor and architect on board so that we may continue for the success of this project.
To all of those that have helped make our schools nothing short of the best...thank you! May you celebrate this season with the warmth and friendship of your families and all of those that you hold dear to your heart.
See you in 2018!
-Mark A. Payler, Superintendent
