School Construction Budgets to be Discussed

The Putnam County Board of Education on Thursday will be updated on the progress being made on several school construction projects -- including the nearly completed renovation at Jere Whitson Elementary School and the construction of a new school at Algood. The renovations required to the turn the old Algood School into an adult learning center will also be discussed, as will the topic of what to call the building which has been known as the "old Algood School"for several years now. The school board is also scheduled to discuss how to handle the proceeds from the sale of Prescott Central Middle School and may discuss what to do with the money they saved when bids came in lower than projected for the new Prescott South schools.
