MOLINE-- The Moline-Coal Valley School District will hold a special meeting on Monday to unveil plans for remodeling Hamilton Elementary School.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the John Deere Middle School cafeteria, 2035 11th St., Moline. People will be allowed to ask questions.

The project is expected to cost about $17.3 million and will include an expansion of the building at 700 32nd Ave.

The project is part of a larger plan that includes closing Ericsson and Garfield Schools in an effort to narrow the achievement gap among students and save the district $350,000 per year.

The board is expected to take action on a final version of the Hamilton design at its Aug. 12 meeting, according to a news release.

In June, the school board hired Legat Architects for design services on the project and Russell Construction as construction manager.The expansion project is expected to be completed for fall 2015, with Ericsson and Garfield schools scheduled to close in June 2015.

The Hamilton groundbreaking is scheduled for May 2014, the release states.
