MINERAL RIDGE, Ohio (WKBN) — Some students in the Weathersfield School District are enjoying new classrooms.
Seventh and eighth graders had their first day in the newly remodeled wing of Mineral Ridge High School on Wednesday. During the renovation process, students spent the past several months learning in mobile classroom trailers.
The district hopes to bring in new technology and furniture for the next school year. The renovation project continues and is all funded by levy money as well as a large grant from the state.
“We’re in the process of building a brand new junior high gym as we speak. The rest of the high school is still under some renovation. We’re consistently working at it. It’s part of a $26 million project from the state of Ohio in conjunction with the community that backed us in March of 2012,” said Weathersfield Superintendent Damon Dohar.
Students in kindergarten through sixth grade are currently in the middle school building. They will move to a new elementary school building in the fall.
