Trustees with Brownstown Central Community School Corp. received an update Monday night about $24.8 million in projects that include a facelift of the high school and addition of classrooms at the elementary school.
“We started at about $28 million,” project architect Hal Kovert told the board during its meeting at the Administration Building.
Efforts to fine-tune the proposed projects continue, Kovert said. He discussed changes at all three schools that reduced cost estimates.
The high school work, at $12.67 million, is the most expensive of the three projects, which will be financed through a bond issue.
The work there would include refurbishing classrooms and restrooms in the original building, which was constructed in 1963, as well as replacing the heating, air and ventilation system and filling in a courtyard for three additional classrooms.
