Board of Education members had a lot of questions during the construction part of last week’s board of education meeting. Those questions centered around why contractors are still behind schedule considering the good weather and what would be done to make up the time, without quality suffering. 

Dr. Dale Ellis, superintendent of Montgomery County Schools, opened his remarks by saying, “When you drive by, wow, but still from a time standpoint there is still work to be done to make up for that time (lost due to rain last fall). At the Career and Technical Education facility, the elevator rough in is complete and the kitchen equipment in the culinary arts area has been put in place. The ceiling grid is nearing completion and the painting is ongoing in that building. “As you look at that CTE building it is starting to have a look of a lot of finishes at this point.” Ellis also said the welding items that have been stored at East Montgomery will be assembled and put into the welding lab.
