Both Jamestown Middle School and neighboring Ragsdale H.S. are the first two projects to get started following the bond that was approved by voters this week.

This morning’s N&R reports construction could begin as early as years end.


Construction of a new Jamestown Middle School could begin by the end of the year if Guilford County Schools sail through the permitting process, the school board learned Thursday.

Members of the Board of Education gave the facilities department clearance to start identifying firms to work with architects and state and county officials on the permitting process for the construction of Jamestown and the expansion of Ragsdale High, which would include a wing for students with autism.

Both schools top the list of projects in a $457.3 million bond package that voters approved Tuesday. The schools originally were approved to be built using 2003 bond money, but the board had to delay them because of cost increases in other projects.

The Jamestown and Ragsdale projects are estimated to cost $28 million each.
