District 117 board members are set to take action on building plans for the Turner Renovation Project.

Representatives from BLDD Architects will present their Vision 117 recommendations to the board during a Committee of the Whole Meeting tonight at 6 p.m.

Board members will also look to approve a recommendation to hire Holland Construction as the construction manager of the Vision 117 process. District 117 and Holland Construction had been finalizing the project’s contract for the past month.

In other action, board members will take action on adopting a new school schedule during dangerous weather conditions. In the event that the weather improves in the early morning hours, the superintendent would have the authority to begin school two hours after the normal start time.

The consideration of extra-curricular handbook changes and the Jacksonville High School Athletic Director job description will also be reviewed.

The regularly scheduled meeting starts at JHS at 7 p.m.
