Proposed Repairs and Renovation

      • A significant addition is proposed for the school that would include additional classrooms that will facilitate the removal of temporary, portable buildings, and the construction of a performing arts space, to be determined with input from the school community. 


        Repairs and renovations to the existing building will include enhanced safety and security, including an improved entry; replacement of aging heating and cooling systems, replacement of worn carpet and flooring, and asbestos abatement where needed; replacement of plumbing fixtures; replacement of aging door hardware to improve function and security; painting and refinishing walls and ceilings based on greatest need; replacement of select kitchen equipment, installation of energy efficient lighting and accessibility improvements in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Improvements will also be made to some classrooms and learning spaces.
