The West Bloomfield Schools Board of Education has approved bond issue construction projects totaling $1.29, including the remodeling of the West Bloomfield High School locker rooms and other interior renovations.
Deputy Superintendent for Business and Operations Thomas Goulding stated that the funding for the projects is coming from $15 million in qualified school construction bonds previously issued by the school district. He also said the current balance in the district’s capital projects fund is about $2.95 million.
The high school projects involve remodeling the boys and girls locker rooms at the high school, including painting the walls, replacing the lockers, and installing new ceramic tile floors and energy efficient lighting.
The varsity boys locker room will also have cleat-compatible rubber flooring and improved ventilation installed, and will be expanded into an adjacent storage room.
Improvements will also be made to the school’s gymnasium, where the gym floor will be refinished to include new lines and graphics with the school’s Laker mascot logo.
The school’s auditorium will also have energy-efficient lighting with higher illumination levels installed, and the natatorium will have new lighting placed in its rooms and in the swimming pool.
District officials couldn’t be reached prior to press time for comment on project start and completion dates.
