Description of school construction

Description of Proposed School Construction Project
Dassel-Cokato Public School District, ISD #0466-01, is proposing a single question bond referendum on August 9, 2022, that would authorize $17.9 million in bonding authority to finance facility upgrades to the Middle/High School and Elementary Schools. The vast majority of the work is proposed at the Middle/High School and includes: renovations, HVAC upgrades, a Career Technical Education (CTE) building addition and a municipal water connection. Proposed upgrades at the elementary schools include media center and special education furnishing at Dassel Elementary and a secure entrance/commons area at Cokato Elementary.
The proposed projects would be scheduled for completion in calendar years 2023 and 2024. Cost estimates by location/project component are as follows:
Middle / High School
Renovations to Existing Building
$6,478,150
HVAC Upgrades
$5,389,500
CTE Building Addition
$3,574,216
Water Connection (City of Cokato)
$1,617,000
Window Replacement
$187,300
Subtotal
$17,246,166
Total Estimated Project Costs
$17,987,628
Dassel Elementary
FF&E
$296,500
Cokato Elementary
Secure Entrance
$70,542
Other Project Costs
Bond Issuance
$374,420
The district has supplied cost estimates to operate and staff the additional building space and it appears existing revenues, along with savings from the proposed HVAC upgrades, will be more than sufficient to fund any associated operational cost increases. The proposed projects appear to be in the long-term interest of the school district.
Review and Comment Statement
Based on the department’s analysis of the school district’s required documentation and other pertinent information from sources of the Minnesota Department of Education, the Commissioner of Education provides a positive review and comment.
Additional Information is Available
Persons desiring additional information regarding this proposal should contact the school district superintendent’s office.

Commissioner
