Exterior walls at high school to be addressed

At the school board meeting on May 9, engineer Scott Smith talked to the board about some concerns with the interior walls at the high school. He said that in some parts of the building, the walls are coming out of their original place; however, the building cannot physically come down. There are five rooms in the high school that need to be addressed in the future, including room 203, the room most in need of refurbishments. If the refurbishments are needed, the cost in total for everything to be fixed would cost 208,000 dollars.
