BILLINGS - Of the $12 million bond that voters passed a few years ago, nearly half went to Senior High renovations.
Now phase two of the three-part renovations at Senior high is now complete. Lew Anderson, Executive Director of Facilities, expressed his gratitude towards the voters for making repairs a possibility.
The renovations aim to improve the efficiency of the building and educational atmosphere for students. The project focused on classrooms, with new double-pane windows, improved air conditioning, and a new boiler.
Students and teachers can expect classrooms now to be much cooler and quieter.
One of the more important installations is the school's boiler. The old one from the 1930's was red tagged last year as it was considered inoperable.
Bob Burress, Senior High teacher for the past 30 years, said he was pleasantly surprised by the projects results.
The third phase of the renovations will focus on the cafeteria, gym, and roof.
