SIOUX CITY – The Sioux City Community School District has indefinitely delayed the construction of a permanent space for its virtual academy due to much higher construction costs than anticipated.
The school board rejected the low bid of $1.93 million from W.A. Klinger of Sioux City for the remodeling of Career Academy’s second floor for the Vibe Academy.
Tim Paul, the district’s director of operations and maintenance, recommended the board reject all bids due to the higher than the estimated costs.
FEH Design of Sioux City originally estimated the VIBE Academy construction to cost $1.48 million. Additional costs include $365,380.53
