HUMBOLDT — After entertaining pitches from three architectural firms in a special meeting last week, the Humboldt board of education voted Monday to hire the Wichita-based firm DCS/GLMV to oversee a comprehensive evaluation of the district’s facilities and to help determine a master plan for best practices moving forward.

“What we’re wanting right now,” explained Superintendent of Schools Kay Lewis, “is for [DCS/GLMV] to look at our buildings structurally and mechanically — in terms of HVAC, electric, plumbing — and then what I’m wanting is some type of capital outlay plan so that way we can look at our facilities and have an idea of how to plan for the future. There might be some opportunities for us to look at doing some renovations, but a lot depends on what comes out of this.”

USD 258’s current bonds will be paid off by September 2021. Any necessary renovation or new construction, said Lewis, would be delayed until after that date.
