During the school board's July 15 meeting, Chief Operations Officer Ed Ramos informed officials construction of the campus is only 78% complete and will more than likely not be ready in time to host students by the start of the 2021-22 school year.
District staff said they do not yet have a specific date for when Bohls will be ready, but students are expected to be at the campus sometime during the fall semester.
Superintendent Dr. Douglas Killian said the district will send a letter to stakeholders this week to inform them about the adjustment.
For now, Killian said, the plan is for sixth grade students to be housed at Carpenter Elementary School and seventh and eighth grade students to be housed at Cele Middle School to start the 2021-22 school year.
"I really wanted to see our students in this school on the first day, and unfortunately, due to planning and other things, that is not going to happen," Board Member Brian Allen said.
Community Impact Newspaper reported in May that the project’s contractor had requested an extension of the completion date out to October. However, during a May 6 board of trustees workshop session, David Vesling, executive director of facilities and support services for PfISD, said the contractor and school district were working on an “accelerated schedule” to try to reach the original timeline.
