Boyle County Board of Education voted Thursday to complete the renovation of six public and two private restrooms at Junction City Elementary School.
The projects were not part of the school's renovation completed earlier this year, but Superintendent Pam Rogers said the repairs are needed.
"This has been a priority for us," she said. "It is our hope we can begin this project near Christmas."
The plans call for the district to purchase many of the construction materials, saving money by avoiding sales tax. Rogers said much of the work will be performed by either subcontractors or school personnel, saving additional money.
In other action, the board:
n Gave approval for construction of a wooden pavilion, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Faulconer of Perryville, to be constructed on the grounds at Perryville Elementary School. Board approval was given in September but required approval from the state Department of Education. Approval at the state level has now been given, and Chairman Preston Miles said the Faulconers are already in the process of cutting the wood for the structure.
