Officials Review Improvement Options For West Side CTC

PRINGLE — A feasibility study of building options at the West Side Career and Technology Center includes infrastructure improvements that cost more than $9 million and a $1.7 million construction option. The construction option would allow the high school to remove six modular classrooms that are more than 30 years old and are outside the facility. Officials reviewed the feasibility study from Alloy5 Architecture at Monday’s meeting of the career center joint operating committee. The infrastructure improvements include $1 million on roof work, $3.6 million on mechanical upgrades, $2.9 million electrical work, almost $1.1 million on plumbing and $450,000 on fire protection. The regional vocational high school for the ninth grade to 12th grade is governed by a joint-operating committee with representatives from the Dallas, Northwest Area, Lake-Lehman, Wyoming Valley West and Wyoming Area school boards. After Monday’s meeting, committee members went on a tour of improvements recently made at the school. Monday also was the first day of school for the current school year. The school has installed a new security entrance vestibule and buzzer system. The project cost more than $60,000, career center Director and Dallas Superintendent Thomas Duffy said. Officials reviewed improvements to classrooms for law enforcement, carpentry, cosmetology and electrical work. The cosmetology room has new sinks and new work stations for students. Those improvement cost around $20,000, Duffy said. Contact the writer: mbuffer@citizensvoice.com, 570-821-2073, @cvmikebuffer
