Three major projects supported by the District Sinking Fund were completed over winter break. The upgrades at Explorer Elementary and Williamston High School focused on improving heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Explorer Elementary received new heating units that were mounted on the roof above the circle. All fourth and fifth-grade classrooms are now heated by new rooftop heating units which have been completely replaced over the last two-years.
Additionally, Explorer received a new rooftop heating unit above the main office which will serve the central portion of the building. The projects totaled $36,000, all of which were supported by the District Sinking Fund.
Williamston High School installed a new control system that will allow for more manageable and efficient heating and cooling throughout large portions of the building. This $16,000 investment was also supported by the District Sinking Fund and will result in classrooms having more consistent temperatures throughout the school year.
