Work at Pioneer High School is down to minor details that need to be completed, but the district is working out how to get it all finished because of a lawsuit that was filed by the contractors March 3.
“The expectation is still that it will be completed,” said Interim Superintendent Filomena Leo. “Whatever happens, regarding any question (the contractors) may have, we still expect that the work will be completed to quality standards.”
At the March 24 board meeting, Director of Maintenance Jesse Muñiz said that the project was “basically” complete. There were still a few items up for discussion, but the board did so in executive session because of the pending litigation with Texas Descon. With the exception of some pending air conditioning unit issues, Muñiz said he is satisfied with the issues that have been in discussion for the last few months.
