In addition to the major building renovation projects, air conditioning projects will be completed at Study Elementary and Bunche Early Childhood Center, as well as classroom security lockset installations at 21 buildings and the addition of a new secure vestibule entrance at North Side High School.

South Side High School will see replacement of bleachers in the main gymnasium and new flooring and bleachers in the auxiliary gymnasium.

As always, we continue to say Thank You Fort Wayne for the opportunity to improve our buildings to a level of modern standards and provide better learning environments for our students and staff!

Major renovations include the addition of air conditioning and new heating and ventilation systems, energy efficient LED lighting installations and electrical upgrades, exterior wall and window improvements, security and technology improvements and upgrades to wall, flooring and ceiling finishes throughout the buildings.
