The Central District has long made necessary repairs to buildings on an annual basis. Schools, however, start to really show their age after five decades, requiring more extensive renovation, according to Seeba. The district’s newest school –– Kennedy –– was completed in the 1966 –– 47 years ago. None of the district’s schools has undergone a major overhaul since it was built.
The proposed renovation plan’s objective, Seeba said, is to repair and renovate the district’s schools “so you don’t have to talk about this for another 50 years.”
