The Capital Outlay portion of the budget mainly consists of the demolition of interior walls, ceilings, and doors at the Intermediate School north entrance. To find out more we talked to Mr. Mikulski Intermediate School Principal. As Mr. Mikulski said, they are completely redoing the doors on the closest side to the playground. On the first floor, they must move the door back about 5-6 feet to fit within the state’s new safety codes. These doors are not within the code because they are the same doors that are in the building since it was first built. The only reason that they weren’t forced to update them earlier is because the building was still as it was when it was first built. The reason they chose to do it this year was because they had to prepare for next year’s “Vision 20/20” project in which they would have to update the doors to code anyway. One of the reasons they need to be updated is because they are not ADA compatible. This means that the stairs over there are not accessible and up to code. The other big purpose behind updating the entrance is because they need to add an area of refuge. An area of refuge is a location in a building designed to hold occupants during a fire or other emergency, when evacuation may not be safe or possible. The overall cost of this project will be $100,000 although the school will be getting a rebate of around 78% or about $78,000.
