Renovation at JC elementary begins

Renovation of the restrooms at Junction City Elementary School will be done during the Christmas break, and should be completed when students return in January.

The Boyle County Board of Education members heard Thursday that system employees will do the work, saving on paying a contractor.

The project was not completed during the last round of contractor work, and Boyle's in-house plans were recently approved.

Board members also voted to continue membership in the Council for Better Education, a consortium of school systems in Kentucky spearheading efforts to procure more funding for education from the General Assembly. The council filed suit against the General Assembly in September.


Boyle's member assessment was $1,306, which is based on Average Daily Attendance money the system receives from the state.

Board Chairman Preston Miles said he felt it was in Boyle's best interests to remain affiliated with the organization, and board members agreed.
