FALLS CITY – The Falls City school board is looking to put a plan in place for renovations to the high school.
The board spoke about possible construction methods at the board meeting on Monday.
Superintendent Tim Heckenlively told NCN after the meeting that the upcoming renovations would focus on areas of the high school that were not touched when the school was last renovated in 2000.
One of the areas of focus would be the fine arts, specifically, the vocal and instrumental music rooms.
“Space requirements especially in our choir program are drastically needed. That’s one of our most popular programs with students, almost 70-75 percent of students are involved in that,” says Heckenlively.
He says that design of the rooms and the repurposing of old rooms would be something to still discuss in the future.
Heckenlively also says another area they would look at is the Industrial Tech rooms, which includes welding, agricultural, woodworking and carpentry classes.
Heckenlively pointed out the carpentry area could especially be renovated.
“We have no overhead door access, so that certainly limits the scope and the size of the projects are students can work on,” says Heckenlively.
No time table for the renovation project was put forward at the meeting.
