School Board prepares for public meetings

The Thayer Central School Board is preparing for the public meetings that will be held Feb. 9 and Feb. 10. At its monthly meeting, the board discussed facilities once again and the options that will be presented at the public meetings.

There are currently three different options that the board hopes to present for public feedback.
The first option has nine new classrooms placed on the south side of the intermediate building. The placement of these would allow for future renovation of the current gym into an auditorium, although this is not included in the current bond. The first option also includes a new band and vocal room which will open up more room for the industrial technology classrooms. This plan also allows for a new competition gym and underground tornado safety areas.

The second option connects the intermediate and high school buildings with 12 new classrooms. It also includes new vocal and instrument classrooms and remodels the locker rooms in the existing high school gymnasium.

The third option adds five new classrooms to the existing primary building. It also adds a multi-purpose room that would allow lunch to be served there. Currently, the primary students are bused to the high school for lunch. This option also includes funds for general renovations of the intermediate and high school buildings.
