School officials in Oregon approved a 6.8 million dollar project this week dealing with Life Safety work in the district.
2 Geo-Thermal systems will be installed at Oregon High School and the Oregon Elementary complex for climate control throughout the year in the buildings. The work will be done in the summer of 2014.
The project also includes additional security at all of the schools, electrical work, along with the repair of a water main. Superintendent Tom Mahoney said that they plan to pay for the project through Life Safety bonds which will be paid off during a 20-year period.
The Junior High building in Mt. Morris will be the only school in the district without air conditioning. Mahoney said that they plan to look at their options with that building once the other project is completed.
The board heard their annual audit report this week and also saw the new features in this year's state report card.
School officials met in executive session. 1 student was expelled for 1 1/2 years due to a violation of the discipline code for the district.
