School Board OKs Security, Efficiency Upgrades
The school district spends about $1.2 million on capital projects each year, targeting health and safety, curriculum and instruction and efficiency.
A list of more than 30 capital projects—many of which target security and efficiency upgrades in Oak Creek schools—have been approved by the Oak Creek-Franklin School Board.
Among the improvements are new classroom door locks at schools throughout the district, a new fire alarm system at Shepard Hills Elementary School and additional cameras at the high school and East and West middle schools.
The school district will also resurface the high school's east and west parking lots.
Oak Creek annually allocates $1.2 million for capital projects, which are brought forward by school principals and then prioritized. The district focuses on improvements in health and safety, curriculum and instruction, and efficiency, Superintendent Sara Burmeister said.
The district will also make major upgrades to the Oak Creek High School pool this summer.
