Democrats United In Pike County issued the following announcement on Feb.11.

The Jefferson County Board of Education approved more than $46 million in bids for renovation work last night, including a major project at The Academy @ Shawnee.

The renovations include roof replacements at nine schools, new boilers, two HVAC renovations and a massive renovation of the third floor at Shawnee. The top floor of the West End middle and high school has been condemned for more than 20 years.

Board member Diane Porter said it’s high time the district took action.

“I’m extremely excited that we’re moving forward with The Academy @ Shawnee,” Porter said. “The work has needed to be done for many years. And I want to applaud the superintendent for bringing it to the forefront.”

The board awarded the bid for the Shawnee renovations to Shepherdsville-based EH Construction, which says it can do the work for $36,410,000. That doesn’t include the $1,181,000 roof contract, which was awarded to Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal.

JCPS says it will pay for most of the renovations through bond sales.
