The Riverhead Board of Education has scheduled a public hearing for Tuesday night to discuss using about $237,000 from the district’s repair reserve fund for various capital improvement projects.

According to the school board’s meeting agenda, the proposed repair projects include:

• The stage stairs at high school

• The stage skirt and proscenium at Pulaski Street School

• Athletic facilities adjacent to the high school, including the field hockey field, tennis courts and playing field inside the rubber track.

• The soccer fields adjacent to Pulaski Street School

• The underground storage tank at the middle school

In August, the school board approved using $41,200 from the district’s repair reserve fund for various capital improvement projects at the high school, Roanoke Avenue and Phillips Avenue elementary schools.

Last August, the school board approved using $1.7 million for various upgrades at the high school, including replacement of lighting and crumbling concrete in the back plaza courtyard, repair of the south and student parking lots and replacement of a damaged ceiling and lighting in the cafeteria.

In March, the board also approved using $456,000 from the repair reserve account to pay for other projects at the high school, including paint, interior and exterior door-exit devices, HVAC rooftop temperature controllers and a hot-water mixing valve. Other monies were allocated for the middle school’s boiler room valves and boiler section, Roanoke Avenue Elementary School’s gym floor and flooring for five classrooms at Aquebogue Elementary School.

Tuesday’s public hearing and school board meeting is at 7 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
