There’s no shortage of summer projects by the District School Board Ontario North East.
The Manager of Building Services, Carole Horton, says there are more than 200 projects the board will undertake over the summer at a cost of $18-million.
Kapuskasing District High School gets a new roof over the summer as well as an upgrade to its foundation.
In addition, the local high school, as well as all schools under the North East board will get LED signs installed at their fronts.
A major project is the installation of a 3.3 million dollar track and artificial turf field at Timmins High and Vocational School which opens the door to more regional championships and events.
Horton, says it’s one of the busiest summers for upgrades the school board has ever had.
