Ohio County Schools Bond Project Updates

Last updated January 19, 2022

In partnership with Ohio County Schools, McKinley Architecture and Engineering has launched a Bond Updates page. The following is a summary schedule for projects taking place in 2019, along with others scheduled to begin in 2020 and 2021. It is important to keep in mind that the design and planning for each of the bond projects begins before actual construction. The design phase includes programming, schematic design, design development, construction documents, and state reviews for approval. We look forward to providing updates to this page on the status of OCS bond projects.
