The Hope Public School District will conduct a public meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. to discuss the district’s facilities master plan projects for the 2018-2019 academic year.
The meeting will be held in the administration building second floor main conference room, 117 E. Second St., and will be facilitated by HPSD Superintendent Bobby Hart.
Hart said the facilities master plan projects for 2018-2019 are generally maintenance projects involving new roofing at the Hope High School and Hope Academy of Public Service (Garland) campuses.
A proposal for an upgrade to physical education facilities at the Yerger Middle School campus is also included.
Funding for the projects will be sought through state “partnership” monies which may be used for qualifying projects that involve fundamental student safety and security from the elements. Total cost for the roofing projects is estimated at about $830,000. Work on those two projects is expected to begin in June and to be completed in the Fall, 2018.
