BETHEL TOWNSHIP – Several summer projects are underway at Bethel Local Schools, totaling an estimated $80,000.
Projects include painting and wall repair in the auditorium, kitchen, high school library and junior high gym. Doors to the high school and elementary hallway will be repainted. The junior high gym and the high school gym floors will be refinished, and the high school library floor will get new carpet. The high school gym is getting pressure washed as well.
On the exterior of the building, the north high school sidewalks are being repaired and replaced. On the east and south side of the school, the exterior window supports are being replaced. The brick tuckpointing that surrounds the windows and door openings is being repaired as well.
An exhaust unit will be installed and hooked up on the third floor of the elementary.
Technology has not been overlooked in the list of summer projects. Brett Brookhart’s computer lab, the high school library lab, and the elementary library computer lab will each be getting a wiring update. Each lab will also receive new computer tables.
These projects range in individual estimated cost from $600-22,911, and are coming out of the district’s permanent improvement fund. They should be finished in time for the next school year.
“Let’s hope – that’s our plan (to have everything done by Aug. 20),” Superintendent Larry Smith said, adding that everything is currently on schedule.
“It’s moving along pretty well,” he said.
