Teaneck Board of Education Approves Bids for
Renovated School and New Administrative Building
TEANECK, New Jersey, January 23, 2020 – At last night’s Special Executive Session meeting of the Teaneck Board of Education, the Board approved two resolutions to accept bids and move forward on two district building projects.
The first resolution acknowledged the district’s solicitation and receipt of three (3) bids for the “New Elevator Addition & Alterations at the Eugene Field School” (which was previously used as the district’s administrative offices). As part of this resolution, the Board approved awarding this project to DMD Contracting, LLC, in the amount of $3,600,773.00.
The second resolution acknowledged the district’s solicitation and receipt of one (1) bid for the “New Administration Building at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.” As part of this resolution, the Board approved awarding this project to Mobilease, in the amount of $3,350,000.00.
Dr. Christopher Irving, Superintendent of Teaneck Public Schools, commented, “I want to thank our Board of Education for approving the use of our existing capital funds so that we can continue to make strides with our early childhood program while opening a new administrative office to serve our community within the heart of town. We are on schedule with having these two facilities ready to open this fall – all part of realizing our ‘Teaneck Advantage’ vision.”
For the 2020-2021 school year, the “Eugene Field School” (which will be renamed) will become an all-kindergarten school while the district’s Bryant School will be used for preschool (ages 3 & 4). The Teaneck community are invited to attend a “Renaming” Community Forum, which will be held on Monday, February 3, 2020 (Teaneck High School, 3rd Floor Media Center at 6:30 pm). Forum attendees will be given the opportunity to discuss the six finalists. For more information, please see the Community Forum flyer on the district’s website – www.teaneckschools.org
