SMART Program Update
Renovation Work to Begin at Northeast High School
The SMART Program upgrades at Northeast High School were divided into two scopes of work to ensure the most effective process for the school's enhancements:
- Recently approved campus renovations
- A new addition of a 24-classroom building and a Practical Business Application Lab
The SMART Team and the District thank the community for its patience and collaboration along this process, as the necessary time was taken to find the best solutions available for the Northeast High School campus and the educational experience of its students and staff.
For the approved renovations, contractors are mobilizing, with work scheduled to begin in July. These improvements will primarily consist of roofing repairs, HVAC upgrades, fitness center renovation, STEM Lab upgrades, and other structural enhancements.
The long awaited fitness center upgrade will be made a priority and is expected to be ready for students to make use of upon their return from winter break.
The new addition to Northeast High School will consist of a 24-classroom building and a Practical Business Application Lab.
Development of the new addition is nearing the completion of its Design phase, with construction documents submitted for review by the Building Department.
Once the review process is finished and the permit has been received, the new addition will go to the School Board for approval to begin construction.
Message from Superintendent Robert Runcie:
Despite the shift in circumstances brought on by the spread of Covid-19 throughout South Florida, the District remains committed to reaching the goals established by the SMART Program, and your patience through the process so far is greatly appreciated. I have no doubt that the time spent ensuring the best outcomes possible for Northeast High School will bring value to the quality of education and the experience of students, teachers, and staff for generations to come.
