The Nevada School Board recently reviewed a comprehensive facility assessment for Nevada Middle School. The assessment was completed by Estes Construction via a partnership provided by the Iowa Association of School Boards. The assessment summary [below] estimated the cost of renovations to be in the range of $5,320,750 to $7,693,236 depending on the scope of work decided by the School Board. Nearly half of the projected cost is targeted at new roofing and new heating/cooling systems, confirming those areas the District had previously identified as top facility concerns.
The Nevada School Board is also likely to discuss the potential for an addition of a dedicated wrestling room. The high school wrestling program currently uses the Safe Room gym, which also restricts gym space for multiple programs. Of the 20 Iowa high schools closest in size to Nevada, only Nevada is without a dedicated wrestling room.
