School construction progress report


by Michael Schuetz

TISD Superintendent, Dr. John Kaufman, says he's pleased with the progress on the school construction upgrades. It's on track and budget, according to Kaufman, "The elementary roof repair is about 75% completed; however, there is some cleanup that needs to be done."

In a week or so the new parking lot for the high school will be finished, as well as the repairs on the pavement on the existing parking lot. They awarded the new track upgrade to Beynon Co., and everyone is hoping that they will be complete in time for this season. The underground and sewage are complete, too. The foundations for the new classrooms is on schedule. Weather permitting, all the construction should be completed in August 2018 as scheduled.
