Board awards Anderson High School renovation
During its Jan. 23 meeting, the Forest Hills Board of Education approved the final of nine major site projects supported by a $103 million bond issue passed in 2014.
“The $22.9 million Anderson High School project awarded to Performance Construction will begin in the spring of 2017,” stated Scot T. Prebles, superintendent.
In addition to the building’s many aesthetic upgrades, Anderson High School’s project includes air conditioning, new science rooms, increased safety and security systems, a more secure front entrance and office spaces. The building will also receive a new multi-purpose space and all student parking will relocate to the south side of the campus.
Parking lots and bus drop-off/pick-up areas will be upgraded, including increased performing arts and athletic department activity parking.
“These changes, including an all new streetscape design on Forest Road, will make our community proud” stated Prebles. “It’s going to be beautiful!”
