QSD to evaluate administrative office needs
The Quincy School Board approved a proposal for a district-wide evaluation of administrative office spaces.
The evaluation involves a tour and review of existing administrative spaces, the establishment of a forecast of long-term and near-term needs and requirements, unveiling options for expansion (such as adding to the existing space, building new facilities or remodeling), and providing a forecast of the construction costs.
A letter from NAC Architecture’s Steven J. McNutt set the cost of this evaluation at no more than $16,000.
Several staffers at various buildings have limited work spaces, making this evaluation an important first step, said Superintendent John Boyd.
“As we are growing, we are also growing out of office space,” he said. “We have staff members all over the place, and we are looking at a low-cost solution to accommodate all the professionals who work for the district, including all of us at the district office, but also special services, migrant services, physical therapists, hearing, etc.”
He added, “We are just looking for someone to help us do an analysis so we can make the right decision on what we are going to do in the future.”
In other school district news, the job of principal at George Elementary School has been posted. There was no screening date set as of Wednesday.
The district’s deadline for candidates for the Pioneer Elementary School open principal job was June 1.
“If we have a good enough applicant pool, we will have interviews on June 7,” Boyd said. “We will have a staff meet-and-greet at 3:30 p.m. and a parent meet-and-greet from 5 to 6 p.m. at Pioneer.
