The Public School System considers the $3.2 million construction of 40 “emergency” classrooms as a major achievement in 1998 among other projects completed in the same year.
Christopher Fryling, PSS architect, told the CIP Committee yesterday that 21 projects were finished last year. They include classroom construction and repairs and termite treatment.
As a result, 10 classrooms were added to Hopwood Junior High School, 14 to Marianas High School, 10 to William S. Reyes and six each to San Vicente School and Oleai Elementary School.
The Hopwood Vocational Education Building was also renovated at a cost of more than $100,000. So was the building “J” of MHS; 118 of its rooms were installed with air-conditioning units.
MHS’s nurse clinic opened in November.
On Tinian, the first phase in the construction of its high school was finished. An air-conditioning system was installed in the cafeteria of the Tinian Elementary School.
On Rota, the covered walkway was completed for its high school, while electrical upgrade was done in the elementary school.
Other projects included the termite treatment of the San Antonio Elementary School library and the construction of a stage platform for Koblerville Elementary School.
