UNIT 2 BUILDING AND GROUNDS DISCUSS MORE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS

 

At the most recent Unit 2 School District Building and Grounds meeting the committee met to discuss some additions and improvements. The Committee discussed the possibility of a new roof on the Pocahontas Center.  The roof would cost $175,000 considering there has been an increase in the cost of materials. They are currently looking for the lowest bidder, and no time line for the roof replacement has been set. 

 

The heating system in the high school gym was brought up. There were complaints of how hot and noisy it is during ball games. The committee suggested going from the 6 current units, back to 4 units.
