DOE administrators have been meeting with representatives from the Department of Public Works to discuss the logistics of a double session at the high school. DPW officials are currently calculating the cost of overtime for bus drivers and the number of additional buses needed to accommodate the schedule.
After DPW provides a dollar figure to DOE next week, Deputy Superintendent Robert Malay says DOE will work to find funding to make the schedule possible.
The double session is necessary to allow for the renovations of 17 classrooms for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Program which Malay says the department does not want to delay any longer.
“The decision is to begin the work on the STEM classrooms immediately,” Malay told PNC. “We're looking at all the possibilities to come up with something that is achievable so that we can get the STEM classrooms ready for the kids quicker."
The renovations are funded through a $2.4 Million grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
