CLINTON, Louisiana — Nearly $702,000 in available federal funds will be used for needed maintenance in East Feliciana Parish Schools.
At Tuesday's board meeting, Mitch Harrell, vice president and chairman of the school district Building Committee, told board members the committee's recommendations are based on a needs assessment recently made by James C. Bell Jr., building superintendent.
Harrell says it would cost $3.3 million to make all the maintenance upgrades and repairs, but the district only has approximately $710,000.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/190nriv ) more than half of the allocated money, or $425,000, will be used to upgrade or replace the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system at Jackson Elementary School.
