Free Lance-Star reporter Amy Umble covers Stafford County schools and other education issues
Stafford High scheduled for improvements
The Stafford County school system’s recently approved capital plan calls for a $5 million, 20,000-square-foot addition to Stafford High School by September 2012. The school would also receive $30 million in renovations by September 2015, based on the capital plan.
The renovations will include enlarging classrooms and bringing more natural light into the building, Chief Facilities Officer Scott Horan told me today. A common complaint about Stafford High is its lack of windows–the classrooms have none–but it’s unclear how many windows will be installed during the renovations.
The capital plan previously called for replacing Stafford High, but the School Board thought that option was too expensive.
I’m writing a story about the capital plan, and I’d love to hear from teachers, parents or students at Stafford High. Please call me at 374-5402 if you have any comments.
