Fillmore Central looks at maintaining facilities


Fri, Feb 28th, 2014
Posted in Fountain Education

Fillmore Central Superintendent Richard Keith presented the school board with some of the facility projects that need to be done in the next few years.

“We have two great facilities,” he said. “We want to maintain and improve them the best we can.”

The maintenance plan, which was put together by Keith and the facilities committee, categorized projects by priority. Some of the projects under Priority #1 included parking renovations at both sites, ceiling work at the elementary, carpet in the music room, asbestos removal at the high school, and windows at the high school.

There was also a sprinkler system at the high school, with an estimated cost of $850,000. Keith explained the Fire Marshall recognized the high school did not have a sprinkler system, and it needs to be done soon. The project would be paid for with Health and Safety funds.

Keith showed plans for parking lot improvements at both sites. The gravel parking area at the back of the elementary building would be paved, and the lot and front drive would be resurfaced. Keith also mentioned the necessity of adding more parking spaces, and he gave a couple of options they had been considering.

Board member Emily Ellis asked about parents dropping off their kids in the morning or picking them up after school. The front drive is very congested at both of these times, and it makes things difficult. Ellis asked if it was possible to make a drop-off lane.

Keith said the traffic there is something they need to look at when considering their plans.

Some of the items on the Priority #2 list included restroom upgrades at both sites, but primarily the high school, HVAC project at the elementary, playground surfacing at the elementary, and some electric signage at the high school site.

Keith said there have been concerns in the past about using up the space at both sites, but currently at least 85 percent of the rooms are in use on a daily basis 75 percent of time. “We’re using our space, and we’re running out of room in some cases.”

There was also some discussion about changing the location of the office at the high school, either by remodeling the media center or adding on to the building.

Personnel

The board approved the resignation of Cheryl Tesch, a custodian at the elementary school. With this resignation, Custodial Supervisor Bern .....
