While the big-ticket items on the March 2013 Cobb Education SPLOST referendum have been getting most of the attention, every school in the Cobb County School District is slated for improvements.
The Cobb Board of Education called for the referendum earlier this month and set a date for the vote on March 19, 2013.
What follows is a detailed look at what each school in Northeast Cobb -- ZIP code 30066 -- would be getting if Cobb voters approve the $717 million extension of the one-cent SPLOST, which would begin collection for five years starting in January 2014.
Information has been culled from the attached SPLOST IV final "notebook" of proposed projects. Here are the major school-specific projects in Northeast Cobb:
- Lassiter High School, replacement gymnasium ($12.7 million)
- Kincaid Elementary School, replacing temporary classroom annex with a new permanent wing ($3.2 million)
At J.J. Daniell Middle School, major infrastructure work also would be funded, including the following:
- HVAC Replacement ($3.9 million)
- Energy management upgrades ($531,000)
- Gymnasium electrical updates ($223,000)
- Doors and windows replacement ($224,000)
Two Northeast Cobb schools would get substantial funds for roof replacements:
- McCleskey Middle School ($2 million)
- Keheley Elementary School ($987,000)
Other HVAC replacement work would include the following schools:
- Nicholson Elementary School ($1.8 million)
- Addison Elementary School ($1.8 million)
