All continues to go well in regards to the renovations taking place at the Elbert County Comprehensive High School.
According to Facilities Director Rick Mewborne, everything is expected to be good to go for the start of the new school year next week.
The only exception to that statement is that work on the school’s roof is expected to continue the first few weeks of the new school year.
Elbert County School Superintendent Chuck Bell feels that the school’s face lift will have a positive impact on the school’s culture.
“I think that once you step into the building you are going to have a new feel. I think that what’s important to us is that the effect is going to be a very positive one on the students, and ultimately on their performance while they are at school”, said Bell. “With that in mind, I think its going to have a big impact on the culture there at Elbert County Comprehensive High School.”
One thing Bell was adamant about is that the school will be ready for the first day of class on August 12th.
The next phase of renovations will focus on the entrance to the high school, as well as a new building for the high school band and JROTC programs.
Those projects will be put out to bid in the fall of this year.
