Over-Arching Schedule

  • All design and construction document work completed by the end of 2020.
  • Bid packages released early 2021.
  • Renovations at the elementary buildings begins summer of 2021
  • Construction on the new middle school building begins early winter 2022.
  • Construction is set to be completed prior to the 2023-2024.


  • A General Contractor (GC) for the elementary renovations has been secured. Renovations are underway. The shingled portion of the roofing has been replaced. New boilers have been installed and are up and running.
  • The elementary renovations came in over budget on bid day. Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) provided a budget adjustment to cover renovations and the construction of the middle school. This does provide more funding from the state, however, the local share will be increasing as well. To make up this cost difference we will be working hard to utilize general fund dollars. East Clinton Board of Education approved the budget adjustment at its May 2021 meeting.
  • A GC for the HS/MS renovations and new construction has been selected. We are awaiting final building permits from Clinton County. Once this permit is secured, construction will begin immediately.


In November of 2018 a bond issue was passed for the renovation of both elementary school buildings and of the high school. Along with these renovations a new middle school will be constructed. This project is in conjunction with Ohio Facilities Construction Commission. Ohio is contributing 52% of the co-fundable portion of the project. There are also portions of the project that are locally funded initiates. These are funded 100% by local monies.

In August of 2019, East Clinton was given a final approval from the state controlling board to move forward with the project.

In November of 2019, the architectural firm, Elevar Design Group was selected for the Middle School construction and facilities renovation project.

In December of 2019, visioning work began with teachers, aides, coaches and others to help shape the project design. This is a critical step in ensuring that the needs of our students are met through the design.

Monthly CORE meetings are scheduled to bring the state, the architects, and other key personnel together with district administration. These meetings will ensure communication on maintaining the budget for the project as well as monitoring the schedule to allow for an on-time completion.

The timeline of events is as follows:

  • December 2019-November 2020
