Upgrade Electrical Infrastructure*
The building’s antiquated electrical distribution system will be upgraded, and additional outlets added to accommodate an increased demand due to modern teaching tools such as computers and tablets.
New Heating/Cooling System & New Controls*
New, high-efficiency heating/cooling systems will be installed to replace equipment that has reached the end of serviceable life, which reduces maintenance and energy costs. New controls for these systems will be integrated into the District’s control system to optimize performance and provide a more comfortable environment and increased energy efficiency.
All lay-in ceiling tiles and ceiling grids will be replaced. This will facilitate the installation of the new heating/cooling systems and significantly improve the aesthetics in the building.
Upgrade Roof & Gutters*
The existing leaky roof will be replaced with a new, high-quality roof system that has a long life-span, is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. A new gutter system will be installed to improve drainage, specifically to prevent water from flowing back to the front entrance of the school.
Fix Drainage on East Side
Exterior drainage issues on the northeast end of the building will be fixed by re-grading and, if needed, installing a new storm drain.
Upgrade Select Doors*
Replace three sets of metal double doors and frames and one single metal door on the northwest end of the building that have become damaged.
Fire Door Replacement
Replace and upgrade fire doors at north and south hallways. This includes four sets of double doors that need to include magnetic fire release mechanisms.
The bleachers in the gym are dilapidated and not serviceable. They will be replaced with new bleachers.
Replace Tile on South Side*
The aging floors in the south end of the building will be replaced with durable, low maintenance vinyl composite tile.
Relocate Solar Panels to Ground
Relocate solar panels from the roof to the ground.
