The Cameron R-I School District opened bids last week for the project, which will include a new middle school and enhance security at district facilities.

Voters in the district approved a $9.75 million school bond in April to finance the project. The measure did not raise taxes, but extended the district’s current debt service levy for 12 years.

Superintendent Matt Robinson said the district hopes to begin construction as soon as this month.

“That’s kind of the plan, once we get a contractor to start getting some dirt moved and see how much work we can get done before the cold and rainy season,” Mr. Robinson said.
The new school — Cameron Veterans Middle School — will house students in grades 6 through 8. Parkview Elementary will house kindergarten through second grade.

The current middle school will become an intermediate school for children in grades 3 through 5. The high school will retain grades 9 through 12.

If construction goes according to schedule, the facilities should be ready for students by the beginning of the 2015-16 academic year.
The new middle school will be constructed west of the high school on land donated by the nearby Missouri Veterans Home. The high school and middle school will be connected, which will allow middle school students to access shared facilities for agriculture, band and choir by walking outdoors.
