con cern was the walkway in the front of the building The walk will be expanded by four feet and a roof will coyer the entire area There wasnt a roof in the district that wasnt leaking Weve fixed that and weve fixed the concern about the buses said board president Leo Chafin Other renovations include removing asbestos replacing electricity installing carpet installing new windows and expanding areas said Brati berry Its going to look like a good building thats been remodeled It will basically resemble other campuses in the he said However Bradberry said the big decision that needs to be addressed now is where to put stu dents while the work is being done One option is to hire a contractor to work around the clock antt get the work done during the summer Bradber ry said he has not gotten an estimate on how much this will cost He pointed out a problem with this option is the contractor who gives the estimate may not but and the district may not be able to get anyone to do it The second option is to move the students to an alternative existing building Bradberry said this would cost about He said this has sev eral benefits ineJtuding there will be more room ami it vviiU fee in
