Hamilton Board of Education discusses building issues, financial problems

Hamilton Township’s Board of Education addressed a number of long-standing issues at its meeting Tuesday night, including its aging infrastructure and financial mismanagement in the district.
Board Vice President Joe Malagrino said the district’s architect had submitted a report that graded the conditions of the district’s schools. The district is working on revising a plan to renovate and repair the district’s schools, which initially estimated the cost at $134 million.
“This is still premature, we still have to digest and gather more information and figure out where we are going with this,” he said.
Greenwood school, which had a problem with bricks falling off of its external façade earlier this year, received an “F” from the district’s architect. Another school also almost received an “F” grade from the architect, but board members did not mention the name of that school.
John Miranda, the district’s new director of facilities, said the district has also lined up a number of projects for the summer months, including renovation of Hamilton High West’s sewer system and locker room area.
“We have several large projects kicking off as soon as school ends,” he said. “There is a lot of work that has to be done here and not all of it can be done in one year.”
