The Maryvale School District's buildings and grounds may be due for some improvements.

The School Board over the next few meetings will hear reports from architects and engineers hired this summer to study possible infrastructure improvements in all districts buildings including the intermediate, middle and high school buildings on Maryvale Drive, as well as the primary school on Nagal Drive.

The district isn't looking at any major new construction but is interested in upgrading parts of existing district buildings, school officials said.

Some school roofs are 15 to 20 years old, electrical work needs to be done in the buildings and, in some cases, the district is dealing with the building's original heating units, said Robert J. Tauriello, assistant superintendent for administrative services.

There are no cost estimates right now, school officials said.

The School Board still hasn't yet ascertained what improvements may be needed. Board members will be evaluating the various proposals and options, after they are presented, Tauriello said.

"They haven't made a decision," Tauriello said. "At this point, the board is simply listening to architects and engineers to hear what work may need to be done".
