How much will this cost?
This is to be determined due to the water damage that you cannot see with the decking. We are estimating around the $2 million dollar range.
When will the project take place?
This is to be determined and based upon several factors; board action, supply, and labor. We would hope the project would start towards the end of the school year after state testing and throughout the summer.
What color will the roof be?
This too, is to be determined. I am well aware that we have some rather passionate community members for red and black. The determination will be a group decision with the Board of Education and myself for what is best for longevity and aesthetics.
Will there be a disruption to student learning?
The hope is no. This will be determined by several uncontrollable variables: supply chain, timing, labor, etc. Regardless, we will put forth every effort that teaching and learning will have zero to minimal impact.
Why are you replacing the roof now?
If we pass a resolution in a month or two, the project cannot start for at least 4-5 months. We have had outside companies inspect and diagnose our current roof, giving us 1-3 years remaining on the roof. These inspections took place in the spring of 2022 and fall of 2022. Thus, our time is almost out.
How long is a metal roof warrantied?
The warranty is product and company dependent. Prodigy LLC is a 30 year water tight, fit and finish, color fast (excluding red) 100% warranty. They do not prorate their warranty and the warranty is not owned by a “third party.”
Where is the money coming from for this project?
My predecessors, Rhonda Feasel, and the Board of Education have worked in concert to save money throughout the years in a Permanent Improvement Fund. A Permanent Improvement Fund is for purchases that must have a life expectancy of five years or more.
