The Hopevale Union Free School District School Board has awarded contracts for a 24-classroom school.
Construction of the structure off Southwestern Boulevard in the Town of Hamburg is expected to begin in late winter and be completed by July 1992, according to Superintendent Timothy Rochford.
The nearly 20-year-old district is funded with federal, state, county and other school district money. Its students, girls 13 to 17, generally are assigned by courts from throughout the state and some area school districts. Student stays range from 12 to 15 months, Rochford said.
The district reduced parts of the project because the initial bids exceeded available funds.
