The cost of a schematic design that will give officials a more comprehensive look at the potential for new elementary schools at Piedmont and Jefferson City is expected to be less than $100,000, School Board members learned last week.

Meeting Thursday, the Board accepted County Commission’s offer to share the cost of the research equally and approved a contract with The Lewis Group for the work. Commission offered last month to split the cost up to $375,000 as a way of assessing the scope and price tag of the School Board-recommended plan to build two new schools.
