The Oil City School Board has reportedly chosen one of the options presented by consultants regarding renovation plans involving the school district’s elementary schools.
An official vote will be taken at a later date.
The chosen plan would result in the construction of a new school facility for third- through fifth-graders, possibly on school property on Oak Grove Street. This would involve moving fifth graders from the Oil City Middle School into the new complex. Construction costs could approach $20-million, much of which would be derived from a state program for reimbursements for new school buildings.
The proposal would also result in renovations to Hasson Heights Elementary School, which would be attended by kindergartners and first- and second-graders.
