When the $12 million Lake Shore High School renovation project is completed, some areas of the facility will be open to the public, School Board President William Connors said Tuesday night.
Connors said the district has formed a committee to get the word out to the public about the project, which should be completed by the opening of the 2001-02 school year.
In addition to new classrooms, an indoor track, new library, music and fitness centers are planned for the project, some of which will be open to the public on a limited basis, Connors said.
"It's going to be accessible at times," Connors said. "We want to get the word out to make the community aware the school will have a lot of good things."
The ninth grade, which is now part of the middle school, is expected to move into the new facility when it is completed, creating a new middle school configuration comprising sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
In other business, the board heard a report on the district's summer English language arts program from elementary curriculum coordinator Erzsebet Kovacs.
The program was designed as an early academic-intervention service for students who need additional support to succeed on the fourth-grade assessments, Kovacs said.
The board also:
Approved the three-year probationary appointment of Brandy Blanchard as an elementary teacher.
Approved the tenure appointment of reading teacher Laureen DiMaria.
Accepted the resignation of Amy Ratajczak as part-time speech therapist.
Approved the one-year appointment of reading teacher Michele Nellist.
