A busy summer of improvement projects at Bellefontaine City Schools is already underway.

A flooring project started Monday at Bellefontaine Intermediate School.

Crews are removing carpet in 10 classrooms.

The carpet is being replaced with a rubber floor, similar to the floors at Bellefontaine Elementary School and Bellefontaine Middle School.

The rubber floors are easier to clean and disinfect.

The flooring is also being replaced in the office/administration area at BIS.

A much larger renovation project at Bellefontaine High School will be in full gear early next week.

ESSER III funds from the federal government will pay for the project, which will lead to energy and maintenance savings for years to come.

Energy Optimizers, USA from Dayton will perform the $3.7 million project this summer and next summer.

The project will provide a cleaner indoor environment, a healthy learning environment, extend the life of the building, and avoid future capital costs.

The specific components of the project include: replace an outdated chiller, add cooling to the high school gym, replace aging piping, remodel restrooms, replace two sections of the roof (library and center classrooms), new doors and windows, flooring, and building controls.

BCS Director of Administrative Services Roger Ely said, “This project is all about improving the learning environment for students. It’s a real blessing for the school.”

The original portion of the high school was built in 1968.

ESSER III funds will also pay for the flooring project at BIS.
