Jacksonville schools in line for renovations


JACKSONVILLE — Expect renovations and additions to the high school and elementary school in the next five years, as well as more technology funding.

Board members Tuesday signed off on a five-year capital plan which includes seven projects prioritized according to need.

The first project, which will be funded in the 2008 fiscal year, involves $1.3 million in additions and renovations to Jacksonville High School.

Some $500,000 in additions at Kitty Stone Elementary school is the next project on the list, which will be funded in 2009.

The next two priorities on the list include committing $200,000 in information technology to city schools and another $300,000 in renovations at Kitty Stone.
