Projects Discussed 11-5-2007
new classrooms (w/ restrooms) at Herald Elementary
new classrooms (w/ restrooms) at the high school + canopy to main
bldg + brick exterior of the then 12 room remote bldg. + Commons
refurb in main CHS bldg
new 77 passenger school buses + security cameras for all buses.
(Option for 1 van also if buses not air conditioned.)
turf for Sallee (football) Field (which would also be the band practice
field, soccer field, youth football field, ...)
The estimated projects above totaled ~$4.5 million and additional topics
(e.g. next phase of track development with stands and rest rooms, etc)
will be presented at the next meet. I have lots of additional notes from
the presentation of each topic above but will keep it simple now pending
actual approval by the board. A few photos of potential designs are at
right. -- Ted
