School projects almost finished

Students and staff at two Greenwood elementary schools soon will have more classroom and office space.

Construction projects at Westwood and Southwest to add classrooms, offices, common areas and a media center are nearly finished. All that’s left is to move furniture into classrooms at Westwood, hook up a new heating and air conditioning system at Southwest and finish some exterior roof and paving work at both schools, director of fiscal services Todd Pritchett said.

The projects, which cost a total of about $3.2 million, were the first school construction projects in Johnson County since 2011, when Clark-Pleasant opened its new middle school.
