School board approves bid for fence project

This is a report of Tuesday’s Clovis Board of Education visitation meeting at The Clovis High School Freshman Campus:

• Board members approved a $22,960 bid for steel to be used for a fencing project at Clovis High School.

The contract was awarded to Glenco, a steel fabrication company.

The high school metal and auto shops will assemble the seven-and-a-half-foot fence around the campus, according to Joel Shirley, assistant superintendent for operations. The bid was for enough steel to cover go around the Rock Staubus Gymnasium and the Leon Williams Stadium, he said.

Shirley said the project is estimated to take four years to complete.

• Board members accepted a $62,851 grant from the Public School Capital Outlay Council to develop a five-year facilities master plan for the school district.

The total cost for the plan is $78,564. The school district will pay the remaining $15,713, according to meeting documents.
