Bethel officials to meet about proposed school renovations

A joint Bethel Board of Selectman/Board of Finance Meeting will be held tomorrow night about the proposed renovations to Rockwell Elementary and Johnson Middle schools.  The meeting will be held in the general purpose room in the Municipal Center at 7pm tomorrow.

 

While the state is having financial issues, the school construction grant program is not a program that has been proposed to be cut. Under the current guidelines, Bethel would recieve 45% reimbursement for eligible costs on a "renovate as new project". Not all costs are eligible for reimbursement. Approximately 40% of the project is reimbursable.

 

Both schools have problems in heating and cooling, and after renovations the buildings will be climate controlled. Neither building has central AC currently.  The bus loop and parent drop off currently presents a safety concern.  The project design separates the bus and parent drop off. The fill removed from the back of Rockwell will be used to expand the playground area.
