LAPAZ/LAKEVILLE â€” Can you update your image to reflect your modern approach to education? Yes, you can, if Union North School Corporation is the example.
LaVille Jr. /Sr. High School has recently completed some inexpensive but effective changes to its physical plant to do just that.
While a recently-approved bond issue will allow needed upgrades to both the elementary and the secondary buildings, the district is being very cautious with how the money is spent.
â€śPaint and some updated signage do wonders for a new image,â€ť said Superintendent Mitch Mawhorter.
Demonstrating his point, he indicated paint jobs on entrance doors and the athletic field restrooms, among other things. Although the bond issue provided $1,100,000 for needed improvements, the paint jobs only cost $1,700 of that total at the Jr./Sr. high school.
A new logo and appropriate signage are even more effective in creating a sparkling new look as you enter the school building (see photo). The signs on the gym floor, the building entrances, and the concession stand are also a relatively small chunk of the monetary outlay.
