The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) Board has approved the construction phases to begin on two new high school projects, the West Charlotte High School and the Olympic Relief High School.

The CMS superintendent says construction should start in the final week of April on the schools, funded by $180 million in bonds. They will both have 100 classroom and serve about 2,500 students when they’re completed in August of 2022, WBTV reports.

A joint venture of Rodgers builders and Holt Brothers Construction won the $88 million contract to build the West Charlotte High School, designed by LS3P. The CMS board also awarded a $92 million contract to Edifice General Contractors to build the Olympic Relief High School, with Little listed on the CMS as its A/E designer.

The CMS site also lists these “upcoming bid opportunities” for April:

​New ES (Nations Ford, Sterling, Steele Creek) Reief ​April 2020 ​FWA ​Metcon
​Briarwood – Site Package ​April 2020 ​ADW ​New Atlantic

WBTV says the school board approved its 2020-2021 budget at $1.7 billion for the year on April 28.
