Owls Head — The steel framing for the new Owls Head school is rising.

Nearly four months after ground was broken, the school is taking shape.

The project is expected to be completed in time for students to move into it for the start of the 2018-2019 school year.

The new school will have two stories, with a first-floor footprint of 28,000 square feet. There will be classrooms on both floors.

The existing Owls Head Central School will be leveled during the summer of 2018.

The general contractor for the Owls Head school is Blaine Casey of Augusta, which was the low bidder at $7,678,275. The new school was designed by architect Jason Merriam.

There would be a lot more ownership to the process of recording history in the making IF the students did it, since you did not mention who is posting regular updates and if that will be available other than facebook. It needs to be on paper and presented in some kind of a journal which would show me, and maybe others, the students involvement directly. My preference, all I am saying.

What a great looking school, innovative, and technologically advanced. I hope that perhaps the students will prepare a log of the progress, along with pictures of the school being built. What a great project and recording of history pretty much not done before I would think. With color pictures and the students own notes it would give them a sense of ownership and memories for such significant project.
