The adopted Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for FY20 includes funding for a four classroom modular addition at Meredith Elementary. The new addition includes the purchase of new furniture and equipment to support the academic program. The furniture and equipment will be procured from vendors who are a part of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Cooperative Programs. By using the identified vendors, the District is guaranteed the lowest, most competitive price. Success will be measured by having delivery of furniture and equipment at the completion of the construction.
