Several improvement projects, including replacing part of the roof at two schools are expected to be done later this year.
The roof projects will cost $143,000 and $307,000 at Lafayette Elementary and Wayne Hills High School, respectively. Replacing the windows at George Washington will cost about $153,000. A new restroom compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act will be built at Hills for $91,500.
The district will receive a $278,000 grant from the state to pay for 40 percent of the almost $695,000 cost.
More than $362,000 will be allocated from the district’s capital reserve account to finance the remaining 60 percent of the roof and windows projects.
The local share of the bathroom project, $54,900, will be funded by a federal grant financed by the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
Superintendent Ray Gonzalez said the roof and windows projects would be bid on in the spring. Work will likely begin in the summer. Work on the restroom can begin as soon as February or March, Gonzalez said.
