Why has the campaign/construction budget gone up by $1.5M?

The original master plan was expedited in 2009/10 to meet the BEST Grant deadline and at the time we weren’t able to adequately contemplate the educational uses that exist today — as our verification process in 2014 revealed. There was also a gap between the budget assumptions of that time and construction realities today. For example, square footages for the school increased as we sought to accommodate an additional 5-8 classroom (one more than we had in 2010) and an art classroom in the main building (current best practices). These two spaces added approximately 2,000 sf, and the attendant costs, to our design.
