Building Project Updates
Excited to learn more about the upcoming FHEVS Building Project?
All updates will be posted on this page.
The board will meet at the Harding High Auditorium to hear presentations from architect firms chosen by the school board for proposals for the Expedited Local Partnership Program (ELPP).
The meeting is open to the public for observations only and will allow board members to ask questions after each presentation. The architect firms will present information on their experience of design as well as their design process. There will be no action taken at tonight’s meeting, but the board will be asked to choose a firm at an upcoming board meeting. Public Board Meetings, 2/22/22, 2/24/22, 2/28/22

Bond Issue 3 passed, now what?
I wanted to take a moment to thank our school district’s voters for helping shape the future of our schools. This continues a tradition of support in our schools and assures a lasting legacy of academic excellence and opportunities for our students, staff, and community.
Our next steps with our ELPP (Expedited Local Partnership Program) project remain in local control because we are not yet accessing Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) funds. While waiting for our funding turn with the OFCC, we will prepare our request for qualifications (RFQ) and Construction Manager at risk. The selection of our design and construction teams is our immediate focus. Our district will still lean on the OFCC as a consultant during the ELPP phase. We hope to have the RFQ finalized and ready to advertise the week of November 29, 2021. FHEVS will run the RFQ on their social media pages, local website and post it on the OFCC website for architects and invite them to apply. Once we have scored the most qualified architects, the top three will move on for an interview with the Board. FHEVS plans to secure the project architect by the end of January or the beginning of February 2022.
After securing the architect, working with bond counsel, we will determine the bond amount needed for phase one of the project. Exciting times ahead, we are looking forward to the journey as we move forward.
I am sure I speak for all of the Friends of Fairport Harbor Schools when I thank you for your support, trust, and the yes votes that made this dream a reality!
Thank you Fairport Voters 11/2/21
