District representatives said they expect to issue a request for qualifications (RFQ) for architectural and engineering services and a request for proposals (RFP) for a construction manager at risk for the new 755-student campus.
It will replace the existing Rogers High School, which had the direst structural needs among Rhode Island’s 60 high school campuses according to a School Building Authority report in 2017.
School Building Committee members will review the applicant submissions and make recommendations to the School Committee and anticipate completion of contract negotiations this spring.
Construction is scheduled to start in spring 2022 for a fall 2024 opening.
