A lot of cosmetic changes are taking place to the ceiling and floor tiles in the hallways and library. Some of them had asbestos. But, they're also fixing a parking lot which is usually covered in gravel. It cause drainage issues whenever it rained, so they're paving it and fixing the pipes.
The superintendent says they want to continue creating a positive learning environment for students. The financial burden isn't falling completely on property owners. So, the school wants to be efficient without how it spends the money from the countywide sales tax.
Since 2010, they've slowly chipped away at all the work. In the past, they've spent millions putting in an air conditioning system and updating windows from 1950.
The total cost for this summer's improvements is more than $400,000. This isn't the last of it. The superintendent hopes to continue improvements to the outside of the building as well, including changes to the front parking lot.
