The Schaller-Crestland School Board voted to proceed with approximately $700,000 worth of remodeling for part of the K-8 building in Schaller. The proposed project will gut one wing of the school in order to modernize the classrooms.
Superintendent Gerald Scott said the district hopes to begin the project at the beginning of May 2001 and have it completed by the start of the 2001-2002 school year. Scott said three months will be enough time for the project.
"Given the timeline the architect gave us, it's very much possible," Scott said. "The changes, though messy, are cosmetic."
All of the remodeling will be in the west wing of the elementary building, which was built in 1957. It will affect nine classrooms and two restrooms.
