Fox Chapel Area plans $2.5 million in summer campus upgrades
Fox Chapel Area School District is gearing up for about $2.5 million in campus renovations this summer.
Work will take place at Dorseyville middle and each of the four elementary schools, said Bonnie Berzonski, district coordinator of communications.
• Dorseyville/Hartwood: Cost is about $1.5 million and includes paving of parking lot and related storm water drain improvements, along with lighting upgrades.
• Fairview: Cost is about $825,000 and includes parking lot paving, lighting upgrades and replacement of the school's exterior doors.
• O'Hara: The district will continue work on the heating and air conditioning system, and renovations to the common spaces, art rooms, library and main office.
• Kerr: Initial stages of site work will begin on the new $18 million school building along Kittanning Pike.
Construction projects were recommended by the Fox Chapel Area School Authority Board, a group of residents with construction, management, business, legal and finance backgrounds. The group works closely with district administration and the school board to help manage renovation and construction processes, Berzonski said.
School gets out June 8. Most of the projects will wrap up before the new year starts this fall.
