It will be in conjunction with a meeting already scheduled for noon at Rockmart High School to approve the budget for the new middle school, which will be located off Cartersville Hwy, behind Rockmart High School.
The school board earlier this year bought about 20 acres next to Rockmart High School campus for the middle school.
The land purchased totaled $300,000. The school could cost an estimated $13 million, and Superintendent Dr. Darrell Sorrells said the facility would be able to hold 750 students.
There is some concern that the new middle school will not be ready for the start of the 2007 school year as previously planned.
R.K. Redding, the boards construction manager, has said they can have the school ready by October 2007, but also said that they would try and get the school move-in ready by the start of the 2007 school year.
Officials say that hold ups in the surveying process and changes brought on by state department fire marshall codes caused the boards hired architect, Craig Buckley, to be late with the final plans.
The plans have since been delivered to board members and construction will continue as planned.
The Polk County Board of Education gave the nod last in January to Buckley and Associates to begin tailoring the blueprints that will be used to build the new Rockmart Middle School.
At that meeting, Buckley said the design would give the board more bang for their buck.
The plan features a pinwheel design, similar to Cedartown Middle School, that allows for monitoring of all classroom wings from one common area.
Sorrells said the school is being built with future growth in mind.
This plan would allow for easy additions, he said.
