North Callaway School District looking to improve buildings

North Callaway School District is trying to figure out what to do with its aging buildings.

Danielle Atterberry, director of the facilities improvement committee, said school buildings are reviewed annually to see what the cost of maintenance repairs would be.

Atterberry said the district needs to do something with the aging buildings and properties the school district owns.

The Facilities Improvement Committee said it would make sense for the district to have one campus in Kingdom City for all students.

Hatton-McCredie Elementary School and North Callaway High School are in Kingdom City, while Williamsburg Elementary School is in Williamsburg and North Callaway Middle School is in Auxvasse.

Members of the committee attended the school board meeting Thursday to recommend the board allow district staff to continue looking into options to address aging buildings and consider potential costs for the project. Staff wants to define the scope of what that project would be and walk through the steps of what the school district could afford for the project.

Superintendent Nicole Kemp said a task force will be put together and will present at the next meeting.

The board also approved construction for the booster club's awning near the concession stand. The construction is paid for by the booster club. Construction will start in June.

The board also set the tuition rate for out-of-district students for the 2022-23 school year at $11,000.
