Repair work on the bathrooms at all five schools, he said, would have to be phased in over three years, with much of the work being completed during the summers. He added that the science labs would be state-of-the-art.
2012 Kennedy graduate Ross Shulman, who is now a student at Emory University in Atlanta, asked whether water fountains would be replaced as part of the bond proposal. Shulman said that water from the fountains had a bad taste when he was a student.
“Water fountains will certainly be one of the things we look at,” said Superintendent John DeTommaso.
In August, an environmental consultant will issue a report to the school board about the proposal’s possible environmental impacts, and in September the board will hold a community forum to gather input on the measure.
Any proposal the board decides on must pass a state Department of Environmental Conservation environmental quality review, Smith said.
He said he believes the district could bring a bond proposal to a public vote by November or December, adding, “It’s extremely doable.”
