The Triton Community School Board discussed proposed building projects for this coming year.
Superintendent Donna Burroughs said a facility study was conducted in the fall that identified the corporation’s needs.
“It was identified that we need a new heating and cooling system at the elementary school, we need a new roof at the high school and we should look at a new gym. We’ve been using the old Bourbon gym and it’s in need of a lot of repair,” said Burroughs.
The Triton Community School Board has added days to the end of the school calendar to make up days missed due to weather. Superintendent Donna Burroughs said the school board met in special session Thursday night to make another determination on how to make up days missed. She said the board was given permission to add hours to the end of school days in order to make up that missed instruction.
“It was just made available to us this week through the State Department of Education to add time to different days of the week. Six hours of added time, however it was made up, would equal one make up day. We opted to add 45 minutes to our days on Fridays. Eight Fridays adding 45 minutes a day will equal six hours so that will give us one makeup day,” explained Burroughs.
