“In the last five years, we’ve replaced the roof at North Elementary, Middle School, the Ozark Innovation Center, sections at OHS and now East Elementary,” Assistant Superintendent of Operations Dr. Curtis Chesick said. “It was nice to work within our operating budget to fix three large portions of OHS last year and finish up a complete replacement at East this summer.”

“It’s really good for our department to come together as one group,” Director of Custodial Services Dennis Faught said. “We get to know each other better and we get to work in other buildings where people don’t know each other."
