The Eastern Pulaski School Board will consider final plans for the $14 million campus renovation project when they meet this evening. The project includes upgrades to the elementary, middle and high schools. Main entrances will be secured and restrooms will be updated. Planned classroom improvements include changing chalkboards to marker boards and replacing windows. Both gyms will be updated with new floors and other electrical improvements.
Plans were about 80-percent complete when the board met last month. At that time Superintendent Dan Foster said they opted to wait and make sure things were done right for a project of this magnitude. Work was originally slated to start in March, but that timeline has been pushed back slightly due to the delay.
In addition to the design approval, the agenda for the 5:30 p.m. EST meeting includes several procedural action items to move the project along. A second special meeting will take place later in the evening after a brief board of finance meeting to present and discuss the planned facility and building improvements. The agenda for that session includes discussion of possible “clerk of the works/project management.” All three meetings will take place in the Distance Learning Lab at Eastern Pulaski Schools.
