Tuesday, the School Building Committee gave a tour to about 20 elected officials of the $67 million high school project.
The project remains under budget, and students should move into the new building in April. Then, much of the old building will be demolished.
The building, much like other schools the town has recently built, will be LEED certified. Here are some interesting tidbits Patch learned on the tour:
-There is a switch on every window in the building, so if a person opens a window it tells the heating and cooling system to stop either heating or cooling that one room.
-The flooring will be what is crudely described as a carpet, but is actually a vinyl with a rubber-like layer that appears to look like carpet. Water and other liquids will actually puddle on top of the flooring, instead of settling in like they would into carpet, which makes cleaning easier and reduces mold.
-The building is three stories. The bottom floor is composed mainly of the cafeteria, the media center and technical education classrooms. The second is mostly English and social study classrooms and the third floor is mostly math and science classrooms.
