The Stuart School renovations and construction of the science wing at Cleveland High School were discussed during the Cleveland City Schools Site Committee Wednesday.
Over the next few weeks workers will finish painting classrooms, install ceiling tiles and replace lighting fixtures with energy-efficient lighting.
“By the time school starts back it should be in shape,” said Cleveland City Schools public information supervisor Chuck Rockholt.
The school will also have a new entrance which will require visitors to come into the office before actually entering the school, a precautionary safety measure, according to Rockholt.
The builder’s risk insurance coverage is sufficient for the Cleveland High School Science Wing construction project, he said.
“The coverage is properly maintained. We wanted to make sure in the unfortunate event something would happen that we would have adequate coverage,” said Rockholt.
The Site Committee recently requested a new design for the high school’s east side parking lot from its contractor, Mid-State Contractors, architect, and Upland Design Group. According to Rockholt, the original parking lot design required removing several trees and specific areas of the lot would not be paved.
“We’re simply asking for them to come back with a different design which maintains the trees and creates more parking,” he said.
The topics will be further discussed in the Cleveland City Schools Board of Education meeting July 12.
