CALEXICO — The Calexico Unified School District and the city of Calexico have secured state funding for the construction of a gymnasium at De Anza Junior High School.
The gym will cost more than $3 million, to be paid by the school district, the city Redevelopment Agency and more than $1.7 million from the State Allocation Board.
The exact amount that will be spent by the RDA will be determined later because the project hasn't gone to bid.
Bidding on the project will be open to all interested parties at 10 a.m. Sept. 25.
Once the bid is awarded, a financial agreement between the district and the city will be drafted.
CUSD Superintendent Roberto Moreno said, "We won't be requesting more than $750,000 from the RDA, and depending on the bid, it could be less than that."
