The School Board at its recent meeting on January 28th approved moving forward with a number of remodeling and renovation projects at Sunset Heights Elementary, Pleasant View Elementary and High School facilities.

The following projects are scheduled to be completed during the summer of 2013:

  3. Remove and replace ceilings and lighting in these classrooms and associated corridors approximately 18,500 sf. This includes new lighting controls.
  4. Construction of new corridor walls, new doors and hardware, and new lockers.
  5. Corridors will receive new floor finishes.
  6. Renovation of boys and girls ganged restrooms to make both rooms ADA compliant with new fixtures and finishes.
  7. Creation of new staff restroom across the corridor from the ganged restrooms, utilizing the existing sanitary sewer that is in the corridor.
  8. Removal of classroom sinks on exterior walls and installing new sinks on the corridor walls (within the classrooms). This includes new water supply lines and drains.

The projects will be funded by Revenue Bonds.  These bonds will be repaid by revenue generated by the Statewide Penny for School Infrastructure.  The project will have no impact on property taxes.  The work this summer begins the second round of facility work as recommended by the community facility committee that was formed several years ago.  Planning for additional work in the high school facility to be completed during the summer of 2014 will begin in the fall of 2013.  We look forward to the continued upgrade of district facilities.
