The Shoreham-Wading River school board has a nice chunk of change left over from a recent health and safety initiative and will vote tonight to put that money to use.

The space and facilities committee proposed at the Dec. 13 school board meeting to make a number of improvements around the district with the approximately $1 million left over from a health and safety project approved by voters in the 2009-10 school year and another $25,000 in EXCEL aid.

Board members will vote to place a Health and Safety Proposition on the 2012 Annual Meeting ballot that would spend the money on a district-wide security project; improvements at the Wading River and Miller Avenue elementary playgrounds; the Briarcliff Elementary playground’s retaining wall, nurses room and main entrance landing; and the high school court yard. Additionally the district would apply the funds toward abatement of flooding at the Wading River elementary library and at the Miller Avenue parking lot; and on sidewalks, blacktops, curbs, roads, walkways, electrical and heating ventilation, air conditioning work and drainage systems throughout the district.
