Pleasant Valley Elementary will receive a $3.5 million facelift after the Wichita Public Schools Board of Education gave the OK to a bond proposal Monday night.
The district acquired property to the north of the school for an addition that will serve as a new multipurpose room and storm shelter. It will be about two times the size of the current room, and will include new kitchen space.
The bond project also includes renovated classrooms and student support offices, as well as a secured entrance to the building.
Nearly $1.9 million of the addition and renovation comes from bond issue funding. About $963,000 will be pulled from capital outlay. Another $657,000 comes from FEMA.
The project is expected to be finished in December 2013.
The board also approved the sale of the Mueller Elementary property, located in the 2800 block of E. 24th St. N.
J.P. Weigand & Sons will auction the property, collecting 6 percent of the sales price and a $2,000 marketing fee from the district. Once sold, the decision will be brought back for approval from the school board.
