Years of neglect have left the Reading School District with a host of buildings in desperate need of repairs.
Upgrades are needed to heating systems, windows, fire safety systems, roofs and a number of other areas.
Reading has about $56 million available in bond funds for construction, and officials are in the process of figuring out how to spend it.
Michael Kautter of Kautter & Kelley Architects, who was hired to do a feasibility study, recently updated the school board on the status of the enormous project. In all, the feasibility study found nearly $83 million in needed repairs throughout the district.
