The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board is planning to spend over $15 million on capital projects in the next school year.
Superintendent of Business Richard Findlay says they have projects scheduled for a number of their schools.
"Major expenditures for HVAC upgrades at Sioux Mountain School in Sioux Lookout for $2.1 million and at New Prospect School in Dryden for $1.5 million," says Findlay.
"We do have a project that was slated for Beaver Brae. Just because of circumstances, we did not get a bid we could accept."
Findlay says there are three projects in all they want to do.
"The projects are worth almost $2.8 million and they are related. We are looking at addressing accessibility issues, civil drainage and the mechanical retrofit. We were hoping that project could begin this summer."
