School board plans to increase quality of elementary education

Local News

There’s good news tonight for future students of two Sioux City elementary schools.

A plan to provide improved HVAC, including air conditioning at Riverside and Sunnyside Elementary received approval from the board.

Members okayed more than 1.6 million dollars for the first phase of the project.

School operations and maintenance director Brian Fahrendholz tells us the improvements will increase the quality of education students receive.    

“Student achievement, of course, is first and foremost, so us having those students in those classrooms as much as we possibly can learning is the goal for everything we do,” says Brian Fahrendholz, Director of Operations & Maintenance.     

A public hearing on the plan is slated for 6 p.m. January 28 at the school’s Educational Service  Center.
