Please let me make it clear that my recommendation is that there should be no vote on any school closing prior to December of 2015, Zerbe said.
The board is prohibited by law from voting any sooner than May, three months after the Feb. 25 hearing date.
Zerbe said waiting until December will allow the board enough time to thoroughly review all of the data and effects of any decision.
Additionally, it will give ample opportunity for the proper transition time necessary should the board vote to close a school for the 2016 school year.
At the Feb. 23 consolidation hearing, Zerbe recommended Audubon Elementary School be closed and Arrowhead Elementary remain open, selecting from a range of options including closing both schools, closing Arrowhead, and leaving both schools open.
Zerbe said the option to close both schools were not economically or educationally feasible and leaving Arrowhead open had the best prospects for additional construction, if needed in the future, and fewer complications with district reconfiguration.

The new time line will still see the request for bids go out on Oct. 1.
But now questions from bidders will be due Nov. 3, with bids due Nov. 13.
Last week, Zerbe said the ditrict hoped to break ground March 2 with substantial completion by August, before the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
