Muscogee County Schools spokesperson Valerie Fuller said no definitive date has been set to finish the demolition and start the groundbreaking of the new administration building.
"They are working on crushing concrete," Fuller said. "They still have to take up asphalt."
Materials from the demolition, such as concrete, wood and metal, also have to be sorted and separated. Some could be recycled or reused for the base of the new parking lot and paving, Fuller said. She said the work crews have to take up about 13 acres of asphalt and also put soil erosion control methods in place to guard against damage from heavy rains.
The contract with Empire Dismantlement specifies that work crews must finish demolition by March 11, but the crews may be finished before that, Fuller said.

Construction on the new administration building is slated to begin in late summer or early fall of this year.
Work crews began the demolition in November.
