4-5 Center

Construction on the new intermediate center has fallen a few days behind schedule due to weather issues and extensive rock excavation.  R. E. Smith, General Contractor, is confident the project will be back on schedule soon, weather permitting.  This is the district’s first project using a geothermal heating and cooling system. 

Installation of a geothermal HVAC system at Fairview Elementary School will begin in mid-April.   Other district projects include the construction of tornado safe rooms at Mark Twain and Pleasant Valley Elementary Schools, and roof replacement at Carthage Technical Center-North.
