Classes may be out of session for the summer, but work continues for the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation. Superintendent Dr. Jim Roberts says that 21 facilities have to be maintained and improved. Part of those improvements include energy efficiency efforts.
Roberts says that money is coming from the 2019 general obligation bond. He noted that this bond will not increase the local tax rate, as other debt has been paid-off and energy savings are expected to save the school district around $500,000 per year.
Roberts notes that regular maintenance issues also need to be addressed.
BCSC students return to class August 7th.
