The FY 2022-2023 capital program includes funding for the development of an aquaculture CTE  program at Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High School.

The Board approved a preconstruction services contract with Canaveral Construction Co., Inc. in February for design, subcontractor bidding and preparation of the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) proposal. The design is complete and Canaveral has started subcontractor bidding. In order to start procurement on long lead time equipment, Canaveral Construction Co., Inc. has submitted an early works GMP proposal under their continuing contract for design build services in an amount not to exceed $279,977.41 for the procurement of the greenhouse, aquaculture lab equipment and electrical components.
