DU BOIS, PA — The 44-year-old Juniata Elementary School building needs nearly $9.4 million in renovations, according to the Courier Express.
"The aging condition of Juniata Elementary School
and commitment to delivering the most effective educational programs for students are the reasons that led to the current proposed renovation project," district Superintendent Timothy Deluccia said Tuesday at a public hearing at Juniata.
A districtwide feasibility study was completed in 2009, which identified the needs of all district''s buildings but the options were too expensive to tackle at once so the district reviewed the projects and chose Juniata for a complete renovation, the article stated.
Some of the deficiencies include deteriorated caulking or none at all in the expansion joints, energy inefficient exterior windows and a roof that is in poor condition, the article noted.
