Ms. Sullivan reported on the plans for capital improvements at RES and JRMS, notably the HVAC systems. She and other school representatives pointed out areas where they believe the current systems are deficient and offered to provide additional information about the proposed systems from the design professionals. Board members and James Miller, member of the public, asked many questions. Some Board of Finance members questioned the utility of the renovations in case portions or all of a school was put to a different use. This issue will be discussed at a regular Board of Finance meeting.
